Wool Blocking, of course!
I can't tell you how happy I am right now. Just Elated. I even went to Joann Fabrics for some felted-back satin. This was highly recommended by Georgian during my Saturday outing at Nana's Knitting Shop.
I was looking for more of a POP for the inside... you know a little something funky but I think this will really set it up for a comfortable fit and give it an elegant look too.
There is only one remaining piece that is still on the needles, the collar. Once the main parts are dry I'll be well on my to having the collar done too.
Now for any sewers out there... Do I need to pre-wash the felted-back satin? I'm thinking not, but hoping for a little guidance;)
