Somebody emailed me saying that they were making a dress lined in some kind of fabric that wicks the perspiration away. What is the name of that stuff, how much is it a meter or a yard and where do you get it? Also, if I can't find it over here would someone be willing to ship some to me if I paid for the fabric and the shipping?

-It was probably Bernie, with MtnTop Studios. She brought the samples of the Coolmax by here, and they look interesting. I'll give her a call.
-There is also a fabric called Wickaway. Will these fabrics work as linings though? Or will they just end up wicking the fabric to the silk or velvet and get it wetter?

about how many yards of velvet would you need for a size 14 (girl) dress? I am thinking of making a dress but have not yet bought a pattern (still researching) but there are some good sales around right now and was thinking of taking advantage of them. I just need to know about how much fabric I might need.

-It depends on the width of the velvet. For 60" wide, I get 4 yds. This is usually more than enough, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Also, this way you can change the sleeves, cape, or side bodice panels as style and size demand.
