Thanks to one of my favorite tweeps, who is a fashion student, I got this awesome confetti-like polyester.
She uploaded a photo of the fabric and I knew immediately that I had to have it. I went to Brunswick Fabrics today and found it in the window and bought some to make a dress. My favorite tweep told me to use cream-like colour thread and zipper. Thank you Amber :)
The polyester is slippery (this polyester is softer than the polyester I used for my first dress), I found it a bit difficult to cut the fabric, but 5 hours later I finished the bodice.
The sleeves, bust gathering and darts turned out perfect the first go! I'm so happy I didn't have the same issues with the sleeve again.
I probably should have lined this dress, but I didn't buy any lining, so I made facings and did everything the same as the cotton sateen version.
I need help to finish the arm hole... gotta wait till next class...
