Dear reader, I need to ask your opinion.
When I started sewing, I underestimated enourmously the importance of pressing as you sew, that is, pressing your seams after you sewed them and before continuing the construction of your garments.
Now I've understood what a difference this technique makes, but it poses a problem: I'm very careful about energy consumption at home, I try to be as moderate as possible for both economical and ecological reasons. I feel a bit guilty when I turn on and off my iron at least 5 or more times an afternoon, because I know that it uses up a lot of electricity to get hot. My father also pointed out to me that such an afternoon is going to have its weight on the electricity bill at the end of the month.
So what can I do? Or better, what do you do? Is there any eco-warrior among you that has some tips to share?
I'd be eternally grateful!
