Pre-shrinking silk and rayon

MStarr's picture

Help!  Do I still need to pre-shrink silk organza and Ambiance rayon (to be used for underlining and lining) before cutting into it?  The garment I will be making will be dryclean only.  Will a good steaming at home be enough to prevent potential shrinking?  It seems fabrics today may not need a lot of pre-shrinking, but I am not too sure about it.
