    ANY kind of fabric will work unless it's real flimsy like lame' or something sheer. With these a fast way to "line" it, is to use Wonder Under to attach the flimsy stuff to something that will hold up better.
    i read your answer on fabric. I am using pink cotton and i didn't line it. It is just one dress. i don't want a apron with ties. i just don't care for that style. can i sew the jingles straight on the dress ? will the dress be stong enough? does the underdress look like the top dress? will i need a underdress? don't quit understand what an underdress is for? i just need to know before i go on making my dress. i do plan on making a cape with jingles hanging on the ends. i want to dance traditonal jingle. you did answer my question about making the cape. i just want to say thank u alot. you have been so helpful.

    i sometimes use crushed velvet, stiff broadcloth, brocades, canvas for beading, or that garbardine stuff is good too.

    How do you construct YOUR dress??

    I was just wondering how do you construct your dress. What I mean by this is, if you use satin do you line it? What other materials do you use for dresses besides poplin, cotton, satin, velvet etc,. I am all about experimenting!

    differences in patterns
    by rk.purcell
    i just got my pattern laid out and i was wondering if most dresses are seperated from top and bottom and then sewn together with the seam around the stomach or is there a way to make a dress as a whole and with the seams on down the sides,, which way is better. Please let me know before i go through...
