This is an old design in a new fabric, made from my own pattern.

This striped satin is deeeeeelicious. It's actually a full on stretch knit satin, versus what I was using before, which was still a woven but had a little stretch. The bonus... NO ZIPPER! Weeee!
Nothing against zippers, they're just more time consuming.  Wink

The fabric is sort of weird though- it's only 44" wide, unlike most knits that are 54-60" wide, and it stretches lengthwise only. I've had fabric that stretches only crosswise, and fabric that stretches crosswise AND lengthwise, but never have I come across fabric that stretches only lengthwise before this.

I was trying to explain this oddity to my boyfriend and his eyes just kind of glazed over the way they always do when I start getting philosophical about fabric.

It has an empire waist and a flared skirt. Some photos have a petticoat underneath for extra poof!
