    What would be the best fabric to use. I think I want to make this kind of dress for my wedding and I don’t know what kind of fabric. Someone help

    • Anything light-weight will work—voile, lawn, challis… maybe even a charmeuse. Even a light weight knit. Wow, a wedding dress? I’d love to see that!

      • Taylor

        Yeah as a wedding dress. But just dress it up some. I have some ideas but I’m not sure

        • Jenny

          I am thinking of making this as my wedding dress too. Do you have a picture of how yours turned out? What fabric worked best?

          • Jenny, if you search on my blog you’ll find a couple of poses of finished dresses—the white one is very bridal looking! (My cousin almost wore it for her wedding last summer). The best fabric is something light and soft. Crinkle cotton, lightweight gauze, something like that. A light silk would probably work well. :)

  10. Beautiful… Love this !! Thanks for sharing.

    This is so pretty and easy, and I LOVE that it comes in so many sizes because I can rarely find free patterns above a medium. Thank you for sharing!

    This is very pretty & I want to try it! Has anybody tried it in a knit yet? Can you shire knit?

    • Hi, Jessica! Yes, you can shir knits, although I would practice with your particular knit. I would try for something that doesn’t stretch too much, though, especially lengthwise. :)

    This is amazing. Am about to make myself a tunic. Using discarded lace doona cover! I reckon it is going to be fantastic! Thank you SOOOOO much!

    Hm. I wonder if my machine can handle elastic thread. It’s a 1929 Singer, and I love it to bits (it really is fairly indestructible), but newfangled things like shirring? Hm. I’m just not sure how it would handle it.

    • If it has a rotary bobbin, I’d give it a shot—as far as I can tell the design for those hasn’t really changed much over the years. I’m not sure about the old shuttle-style long-bobbins, though.

  19. Love this! It’s one of those make in different fabrics and lengths patterns to wear anywhere :) Thank you so much xx

    Hi Tanit-Isis, I made the long version of this dress in bamboo rayon (yes a stretchy knit) and it turned out fantastic. Its my new favorite dress. The pattern was super easy to follow. Thanks so much!
