FABRIC & TRIM OUTLINE:

TRIM REQUIREMENTS: 32mm (1 1/4") elastic. Lightweight interfacing (fusing).

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: The gorgeous prints available to you in quilting fabric ranges make this the ideal fabric. You can also use rayon, linen, cotton voile, cotton blends.

For special occasions, like a flower girl in a wedding for example, you can even use silk or silk like fabrics. Picture how beautiful an off-white silk skirt with the front waistband in a contrast colour to match the flowers, would look.

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.
Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.
