Obviously pressing wrinkles in fabrics with wrinkle-resistant finishes is difficult. When pressing won't work, top-stitching can help hold a sharp, creased edge. Top-stitch either very close to the edge or about U inch inside. A University of Illinois home economist says that the hem line, in full skirts can be sharpened by turning a narrow hem and sewing three rows of top-stitching.
