Well the Fabric.com swatch came today. It is very pretty and I do like the shade:
Unfortunately there is a significant problem:
Yes I could line it all, but I am planning to only line the bodice, and only with the main fabric. This is too sheer even for that and I just don’t think it would work.
I’m not really disappointed however as it did make the whole decision alot easier. I present to you, the fabric chosen:
I’m very excited! Last night I finally cut out the larger pattern pieces for the bodice and even then I wasn’t sure if I need to go up one more size. I have plenty of calico though so I’ve decided to just make the toile and if it’s too small go from there. I ordered the fabric today so have to get moving! I am hoping by the time the fabric arrives I will have a well fitting toile
