Marla Wynne’s Hammered Palzazzo Pants and Blouson Top Help!
This looked beautiful on TV however when I got it home it looks more like crinkled fabric. I checked it out on HSN.com and it was called “chiffon”. I checked my invoice and it was referred to as “Hammered”. What the heck is hammered and is this the way it is suppose to be–all crinkled? I’m reluctant to iron for obvious reasons. Can anyone give me some answers? I’m so disappointed but will send it back if that’s the way it’s suppose to look–messey!
Hammered is a fabric finish. It give it a slightly wrinkled/aged look. Don’t iron it. The texture is intentional but any creasing from being packaged could be dealt with by steamer. I’d wash them per tag directions and dry on a hanger…unless of course you want a fabric that is smooth finished.
SuzyQ260, it may be that your pieces are wrinkled from the packaging and shipping. You might want to wash them first. I’d put each piece in a lingerie bag and wash on gentle cycle, and either hang to dry or hang over an upholstered chair to dry. I bet that will take out the messy-looking wrinkles. A quick pass with a steamer should make them look like they did on-air — not perfectly smooth, but a lot better than what they looked like out of the bag. I hope this works before you send back because the outfit is very attractive. Good luck to you!
The only time heard heard hammered is in jewelry:)
I never heard of hammered in fashions:)
Peace and love:)
In one of the shows yesterday, Marla said if you iron it you will ruin it. I am not sure if it was the items you have, but I remember it was a “crinkled” piece. I think it was the tank with the 2 layers and elastic bottom. (My autocorrect won’t let me type the word starting with blo … meaning to “blouse out.”) I think you have that same material in your items. I haven’t heard of “hammered” as a description for fabric treatment.
P.S. I have been disappointed by the lack of information this time, including sizing and fit info. This visit, all of the conversation was about the Plus Project with Madeline. Hopefully, next visit the hosts and/or Marla will ramp up the info we buyers need in between the excitement. Kudos to Robin Wall for asking the models what size each was wearing — very helpful.
