Subject: 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.

In reply to: Thanks :) 's message, "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?" on Wednesday, March 22, 05:49:10am

I agree completely, but the type of interfacing does also make a huge difference to the look of the embroidery, and whether the embroidered fabric still sits nice and flat rather than bubbling and puckering (NT)in my experience.Tuesday, March 28, 09:27:53pm
