The fully lined dress has underlining and boning in the bodice, princess seams, a center front bust pleat detail, convertible halter straps, and a three-quarter circle skirt with side seam pockets.

Fabric Notes

Main Fabric: Light to medium weight wovens: cottons like poplin, sateen, and lawn; silks with body like dupioni and shantung; sheers like flocked tulle, lace, and eyelet.

Lining: Light to medium weight cottons and lining fabrics. You will be sewing boning channeling to the lining, so it should be sturdy enough to stand up to the weight of the steel boning.

Underlining: Use a sturdy muslin (calico) for opaque dress fabrics. For sheers, pick an underlining that will be both sturdy and attractive (since it will be visible from the outside of your dress). Good choices include cotton broadcloth, sturdy silks like shantung or faille, and sturdy lining fabrics. It is also possible to use a less sturdy underlining for a sheer dress fabric if you add a muslin layer as a second underlining and baste all three layers together in step 2.

Supplies

  • dress and lining fabric (see yardage chart)
  • muslin (or other fabric) for bodice underlining
