100% cotton flannel will shrink:) Prewash all fabrics:)
Sorry, I hope that you didn't think that I was being a smarta$$.
It is a lesson we have all learned.
Anywhere from 2-6 inches a yard. Depending on where you got it and its quality - from my exp.
I have to agree with Midnight. I have had some shrink 6 inches per yard. I have had others shrink around an inch per yard. The lesson? Always prewash and shrink. Most of mine gets it more than one time to be sure I got the shrinkage out so that when I make an item to the customer's measurements, it actually stays there!! lol
Oh that would be a "oops" moment!
Could you make them into capri style? or shorts?
cotton flannel.. whats the best way to dry it without it getting all linty?
Or you could add a contrasting band around the bottom of the pants. I did that last year when I forgot to prewash my flannel for DH's pj pants! :)
I dry mine in the dryer on high heat. I haven't had any trouble with it getting all linty. I use high heat because I want it to shrink as much as it is going to. Before cutting I steam and iron it all and it always looks pretty good.
