To sew this dress, choose blouse- and dress-weight woven fabrics with the following properties:

- thin, smooth, stable, lightweight, structured, non-stretch, semi-sheer or sheer (for the skirt and sleeves);

- heavyweight, structured, low-stretch (for the front and back bodice);

- the fiber content can include natural fibers (silk), artificial fibers (viscose), blends (silk + polyester, polyester + viscose, etc.), and synthetics (polyester).

The following fabrics are recommended:

- organza, crystal organza – for the skirt and sleeves;

- heavyweight satin, such as duchess satin and satin coutil (corsetry satin), velvet – for the front and back bodice.

Attention! We do not recommend very stretchy knit materials (jersey fabrics), or soft, drapey fabrics (chiffon, stretch lace).

For the lining, use lining fabrics made of artificial fibers (viscose), blends (viscose + elastane, viscose + polyester), or synthetics (polyester, polyester + elastane).

The garment in the photos is made of duchess satin and organza. The organza is thin, lightweight, structured, non-stretch. The fiber content is 100% polyester. The duchess satin is heavyweight, structured, non-stretch. The fiber content is 100% polyester.

The lining is 100% viscose.
