Don't fuse! I've just spent 3 hours seam ripping all of the bodice seams of a dress that was done this way. The fusible caused awful wrinkling everywhere! (NT)dsMonday, April 13, 12:21:40am

Back with either a regular satin, broadcloth, or even a second layer of the crystal satin. Use a temporary spray adhesive to put them together while you are constructing. Then they can float free with no wrinkling. (NT)dsMonday, April 13, 12:24:22am

I used two layers of Crystal satin and backed it with white poly cotton. Bag lined the bodice and it was still pretty light. I didn't use any spray adhesive-just pinned. (NT)Turned out greatTuesday, April 14, 09:34:50pm

I back with matching colored broadcloth and then line with white cotton (NT)jbdWednesday, April 15, 09:58:48am
