I need some help, big time. I just got this amazing fabric yesterday from my favorite barn sale. Its perfect, no stains, pin holes, color bleaching, nada. It’s about 6 or 7 yards (i havent measured yet) of 36 inch wide cotton. It’s pretty sheer but sturdy, and after looking at some other pictures floating around the interwebs I thinks it’s most like voile. It looks too loosely woven to be lawn. So, what the heck do I do with it and how do I sew something so loosely woven without it puckering? Very short stitches?
I’m scared of it. I’m scared to cut it, I’m scared to think about cutting it. I’ll never find fabric in this quantity and quality again. And it was $2. Total. What type of dress would this look best as? If I’m very careful I can get two dresses or at the very least a dress and a blouse.
I was thinking maybe this one. It seems to have a good vibe to it.
