Supplies and Fabric

Fabric: Woven fabric (such as viscose, satin) or knit fabrics (such as cotton jersey, viscose jersey, or ponte di roma).

This is an estimate for prewashed fabrics with 150 cm (60”) width. If you’re buying new fabric for your project, we recommend that you add 10-20 cm (4-8”) just in case.

Elastic, approx. 5 mm (1/4”), if you’re sewing the 3/4 sleeves. Length: 2x12 cm (2x5”).

Elastic, width approx. 10-15 mm (3/8” - 5/8”), for the dress’ back bodice. Length: approx: 30-40 cm (12-16”).

Interfacing (if you finish the neckline with facings, which is suitable when sewing in woven fabrics, optional with knits). Choose an interfacing lighter than your fabric, preferably fusible.

Sewing machine (with jersey/ballpoint or stretch needle if you’re sewing in knits). A serger can also be used for most of the steps, but a sewing machine is just as fine.
