My DIL has requested that I weight the edge of the cowl neck facing to keep it pulled down inside the garment. Any suggestions what to use that would be OK in the washer & dryer?

Thanks,
Nancy

Make a little pocket and put a quarter in it. Not my idea but I remembered it from somewhere.

Sally,
Thanks for your suggestion, I am just making a pull with cowl edge, following Helen S. pattern modification (Wiki), as I increase the depth of the cowl, it will a good occasion to try your idea.
Thanks and have a good day.

A nickel is exactly the same size and weight as a weight you buy in the notions department. But way less than the cost of the weight.
