Sewing II: Make a Dress // Supply List

  • Fabric yardage: 2 5/8 yards of a fabric that is at least 54″ wide (v. important because the skirt pattern piece will not fit on a fabric that is less wide). Recommended materials: cotton, dupioni, cotton sateen, voile, lightweight linen, wool or wool blends. These will be the easiest to cut, press and sew!
  • 3/4 yards of lining fabric for bodice. if the fabric you’re using for the dress is light-to-medium weight you can use the same for the lining, or pick up some voile or china silk (or similar.)
