We recommend soft draping fabrics for best results.
Most light to mid weight woven fabrics will suit this dress.Try rayons and polyesters for summer and mid-weight polyesters and viscose for spring and autumn.
Our black/orange floral fabric sample dress is made up in a polyester. This (or rayon) is easy to sew with great results. The green satin polyester dress looks spectacular but note that this type of fabric is tricky to sew (very slippery) and is only recommended for more experienced sewers.
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
Suitable for Confident Beginners/Intermediate sewers. This dress is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams. There are no zips or button holes and the style is a flexible (forgiving) design.
