In a recent post I told you all about the dress pattern that I wanted to use. Well, today I did step 2 of the process (and what some people consider one of the more difficult steps): I picked out and purchased my fabric! (and of course, I bought the rest of the things I needed too!)
I’m very excited and a bit nervous to start. I think I’m going to start by practicing darts on some scrap fabric to make sure I do it right. And I’m going to make a mock-up of the bust first using some plain white cotton I have as well (thanks to everyone who posted suggestions in my other post).
I washed the fabric this afternoon, so I’ll be good to go. I have one question though, for anyone who has worked with a liner (or even with just this particular pattern): do you have to wash the liner too? I know we wash the fabric first just in case of shrinkage, but does that happen to the liner too?
