someone posted about making this with a triangle skirt rather than a circle skirt - is this in your tute rostitchery? I think I prefer the shape with a less full skirt.

rostitchery's tute is for the original circle skirt version, many variations have cropped up in the thread since.

Yay - I finally made one!  I am now totally in love with this dress.  I can't even believe how quick and easy it was; I'm a beginning seamstress, and it took me less than an hour to put together (including a fairly long period of lint-rolling every piece because I cut them on my craft room floor without vacuuming first and apparently my cat is in shedding-overdrive).  I made mine with a pencil skirt rather than a circle skirt, but I'm definitely going to make a circle version soon.  One bonus of the pencil skirt is that it takes far less fabric - I only had about 2.75 yards, and I only used half of it for my dress.  The rest is going to be used to make a tube top in case I need a bit of modesty underneath (great idea), and to make a shirt version (another great idea).  Thank you to Rostitchery and to everyone who has posted in this thread!

I'll start off by saying that I am a TOTAL fabric newbie. I don't know anything about it. I just touch it and if I like it I'll get it lol. I saw this fabric at walmart and wanted to know if you craftsters think it will work.

if you can't read it: 100% cotton, asst crinkle cotton, width 37/39"
I don't know what that means.  Tongue
It's kinda stretchy but not really. And its thin. Maybe this picture will show it better?

no. I don't think it's a good choice. You need something really, really stretchy.

100% cotton is probably not your best bet.  It is not going to stretch as much as you will probably need it to.  I am not saying that it will not work but something with lycra or a stretch poly blend would be best.  Just my opinion though.  There are some craftsters that have used non-stretch:

i altered the one i'd made previously, so it stays more up around my waist.  and another one in the works!  i passed up the $13/yard niiiice drapey/light/soft black 95rayon/5spandex that i really wanted...even though it was 30% off and/or i could've used a % off coupon, and instead snagged whatever was left on two bolts in the clearance area for $3 a yard plus only $1.50/yd for the partial yards.  one's a tissue jersey type and the other's maybe slightly heavier...neither is as nice and stretchy as that other stuff though.  plus i don't have enough of either to do the whole dress, so either i try to do tops, or do the skirt part in one color and straps in the other.  this time:  wider, slightly shorter straps, not a circle skirt, and a better under-tube.  i haven't started yet, i plan to go through this thread again for all the great tips and tricks i know are here but have forgotten.  ooh, i loooooove the pencil-ish black version posted not too long ago...unfortunately not sure pencil's the best bet for my shape, but it sure does look good on you!
