Gorgeous job! That fabric is perfect for this pattern. Beautiful!

I had a thought about the yardage. You said you didn't do facings, and used a cotton to line it. Wouldn't that cut down on the amount of fabric you needed? Maybe if you used the same fabric it would be closer to 2.5? I don't know, it still seems like a lot of overage.

Anyway, great work.

i had a fleeting thought of it, but the facings didn't use hardly any fabric - probably 1/8 of a yard, if even that. they just went around the top of the bodice front and back. so yeah, idk about the extra. i am now encountering it in an amy butler pattern (and it HURTS oh man it hurts) so i think it is just an issue of designers ~playing it safe~ or something.

eh. anyway.

thanks, everyone!! Grin
