    Wow! That only took you an hour? It looks terrific! Yes, I’d think it would wash okay in a lingerie bag. My other concern would be ironing the linen. How do you iron over beads?

      I’ll iron the yoke from the backside, and embrace any wrinkles that remain as part of the design. 😀

        I bet if you lay a towel underneath, it won’t wrinkle much. But will the iron melt the beads?

        Good point about the towel. I washed & ironed it yesterday. The ironing from the back got rid of most of the wrinkles and a couple touch ups from the front took care of the rest. I think the fact that the yoke is interfaced helps.

        The beads are all glass or gemstones so, no, the heat of an iron won’t melt them.

    I have a top with beads and I iron them with a damp cloth on the reverse side and it works a treat, like the old fashioned ironing on black without the shine, use a damp cloth, linen is best for this not towel. Gosh I hate ironing and here I am giving advice LOL I do love the top it certainly has made a huge difference.

      Thanks, Eliza, that’s good to keep in mind. Yes, I rarely iron if I can help it. The most my clothes see an iron is while I’m sewing them. 🙂
