Wow I lOVE this! I got this fabric in red, green, and black, but havent worked with it yet. Did you put a liner in to? Or just wear a slip? I noticed the "see thru" ness of the fabric and am not sure what I should go with. I am planning a dress, but not sure of the design yet!

Haha! Yes, it would be quite scandalous and breezy if it wasn't lined. There is a layer black cotton under the ghoulie fabric skirt. I was torn when I made it on whether or not to back the top parts with black too. I decided against it and am pretty happy with how it turned out.

I've used the red and black version on a couple recon western shirts- it looks rad like that too... let me find a pic.

WOZA! Love the recon too! It is very psychobilly! I have this psychobilly t shirt that has lime - ghoul- green screenprint skeleton image, and when i saw this at joanne's i immediately thought it would be the perfect compliment fabric to make princess panels for this t shirt! But after i got home i thought, oh man it probably should be lined huh? I could not tell that the top of yours was unlined! It could maybe be b/c it is a gathered bust line? I have concernes on what to use for lining since this has a decent amount of strech...should my lining also have stretch? I would not want my bodice panel to end up all saggy!

Yeah, it works on the top unlined because of the pleats on the side- they make it double-thickness across the bust anyway. Any stretching out doesn't really matter there either since they're tied in the back- it doesn't stretch out so much that you have to adjust it within a night out though.

You could line it with another stretchy fabric- or you could do like I did on the western shirt. I sewed along each stripe to make sure it stays put and to remove the stretch factor, since the shirt isn't stretchy. Because of the the fabric is made, you can't see it at all. I did mostly straight lines, swerving a bit to avoid the mesh where I needed to. For what you're gonna do, I'd probably do that- sew it to a backing fabric, then use that like you would a single layer in your construction.
