This fabric washed and dried like a dream! It needed so little pressing when it came out of the dryer. It also behaved beautifully when sewn! As I am typing this up, it appears this fabric is sold out, however there are some really nice options you can see here: Sateen
If you are interested, here is the pattern I used: McCall's 7242
This is an uncomplicated and relatively easy sew.
I partially tissue fit this in the bodice. Using flat pattern measurements, I knew the skirt would fit.
I used a tiny narrow hem for the skirt. Since the fabric hangs so nicely and moves so nicely, I didn't see any reason to make a wider or fuller hem. What do you think was that a good choice?
I did make an FBA for this pattern and honestly, I believe that is my only alteration.
I love how this fits! It will be perfect for summer--which finally arrived last week with a vengeance! The day I sewed this up it was 100 degrees outside! The week prior, I had my heater in on my sewing room.
Thanks for reading and I hope you are making some fun summer garments as well!
