The appearance of seams in non-iron shirts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Non-iron shirts by definition should be iron free. Although wrinkle-free fabrics have become commonplace, flat seams in non-iron shirts still remain a challenge. This practical discussion generated by the author's own research and experience highlights how an armhole seam in a shirt is joined by a lap or French seam and how the insertion of a narrow bonding tape can alter the bending stiffness of the assembly, hence eliminating any seam puckering even in the most limp of fabric shirts.
