The thing is… the right fabric can make all the difference.
When it comes to finding the right fabric for this dress, you want something that's going to be as comfortable as possible. But you also want something that will hold its shape and won't stretch out. That's why we recommend a medium-weight woven fabric with 3-4% elasticity—it's just right! Our sample was made of bi-stretch woven fabric.
How much fabric do you need for your diy one shoulder dress?
The table below details the amount of fabric needed to make each size of the dress, based on a fabric width between 140 - 150 cm. To accommodate different widths or patterns (like stripes, plaids, etc.) you may have to adjust the placement of pieces to ensure a proper fit.
We know you're eager to get started on your next project, but before you cut your pattern pieces, we want to make sure that you've done everything possible to make sure your garment will fit right.
To do that, we suggest checking the contraction of your chosen fabric and iron steam it at its highest recommended temperature to make sure your finished item won't shrink after the initial wash.
