Subject: Hi. I have always thought the bodices sit neatly/smoothly on Doire dresses and have just had to take one apart to alter it. They are 3 layers, a light Georgette fabric, a stiff woven white middle fabric and a cotton inner, the whole lot is embroidered through. Does anyone know what this middle fabric is that gives the bodices the smooth professional finish?

Additional embroidery stabilizer? (NT)would have to seeWednesday, March 22, 05:28:24pm

Sounds like Shapewell interfacing to me. Commonly used in tailoring. (NT)NThursday, March 23, 07:51:52pm

Ultimately, tho, the pattern is responsible for the fit. No amount of interfacing will make a bad pattern work correctly. And no amount of wishful thinking will force a pattern to magically adapt to a new set of measurements. Learn to take measurements and to understand "ease." That is where we all start.
