I used a cotton volange fabric. It is nice and thin, yet it doesn’t crease too bad. With all the gathering in this pattern I thought it would be wise to avoid any bulky stuff.
This dress is for my oldest daughter. I knew the shape would be just right for her. She was so pleased.
The belt I lined with several layers fusible interfacing and one layer cotton fabric that I also fused to the inside of the belt. I was happy to have a belt buckle at hand. I try to keep things like that when I throw out old belts etc. This one came in handy.
