I have a question and hope someone will take pity on me and offer an opinion. At the sewing expo I spyed some killer lobster fabric and just knew it was calling my name and wanted to become a sundress. Seriously, it is the best dress fabric I have ever seen. I would like a sundress, something with a bit of a flared skirt that I might be able to do a small crinoline under, but that really is my only need to have. It is cotton and I bought 5 yards, totally guessed on the amount.
So, how do i choose a pattern? What I have seen at a quick peek at walmart just made me think of ill fitting, looks like I made it dresses. How do I get a not too challenging but looks ok when I make it dress? I can sew and have made several halloween costumes. I am just not aware of how to make clothes fit well. Is this too much? How and where do I measure? If you live close to me and want to help I'll make you a quilt
