If you're looking for the perfect fabric to sew a dress from this pattern, you'll want to choose a lightweight natural or mixed woven fabric. These woven fabrics are ideal for dresses because they have a bit of give, making them comfortable to wear. Plus, they drape well, giving the dress a flattering silhouette. Of course, there are endless possibilities when it comes to choosing a fabric for your dress, so ultimately it's up to you to decide what you want. But if you're looking for a fabric that will be easy to work with and will produce a beautiful finished product, choose drapey fabrics like rayon challis, linen, satin, crepe, viscose twill, viscose satin or even cotton lawn.
How much fabric do you need for your DIY dress?
To make sure you have enough fabric for your project, consult the table below. This table will give you a general guide on how much fabric you will need for your project. The amount of fabric needed depends on the width of your material. Most sizes are based on an useful fabric width of 140-150cm. However, if your fabric has a different width or design (like stripes or plaids), you may need to adjust the placements of the pieces so that it fits your available width.
Check your contraction!
To keep your new garment true to size, steam the fabric at its maximum heat recommendation before cutting. This will ensure that the fabric doesn't shrink after first washing.
Once you've calculated how much fabric will be needed for your project, make sure to account for any potential shrinkage and buy 5% more than what is required.
