Fabric-choosing dilemma

February 21, 2010

Fabric wizards! I need your help!

I want to make a summer day dress from a 1940s Bestway pattern. I am terrible at picking fabrics to suit patterns, and the envelope gives me no help. Help prevent a sewing disaster by giving me your best suggestions!

Blogger isn’t letting me upload any pictures, but you can see the pattern illustration and get the full rundown over at my blog.

  1. Hi, I made some suggestions on your blog! Hope they help!
    Meant to also add, DON'T use a poly/cotton blend. It will pill.
    P.S. My name is also Suzannah!
    P.P.S. I am sooooooo jealous that you get to go to the Victoria and Albert Museum whenever you want! 😉
