fabric requirements for sleeveless dress pattern

Check your contraction!

Important! Before cutting, check the contraction of your chosen fabric. To do this, iron steam the raw material at its maximum heat recommendation. This will ensure that your finished garment will remain true to its sewn size and won't shrink after first washing. The best way to account for any potential shrinkage is to buy 5% more than your project requires.
