For my lovely dress, I used crepe-knit fabric which I was fortunate enough to buy in 3 different colors, the original price was $24/m but got mine at 70% off the original . I just can't begin to describe the feel of this fabric on my body....ohhhh heavenly!! and how smooth it was to sew nothing to dislike at all. Back to the pattern, I made these few changes
1. Added about 3/4" to the bodice
2. Cut bodice back on grain because I didn't have enough fabric to cut on fold. (I had just 2 m of a 60" wide fabric)
3. Cut the skirt-back on grain due to the same reason as above
4. The fabric had a moderate stretch so I cut 16 for the skirt, and 14 bodice. I am so glad I did, even with my weight loss it might have been a bit difficult to fit...
As promised no more cellphone pictures.....
Hope you all had a wonderful Xmas. Looking forward to a fulfilling 2015....... Happy Sewing!!!!
