Remnant revisit

This was the moment I committed to using this tencil fabric from Minerva Crafts for a Summer dress.

While the pattern New Look 6067 said I needed 1.4m of fabric, I only had 1.1m of fabric left from my original dress 2 years ago.

I laid the adjusted pattern pieces on the fabric and I only had enough to make the cap sleeve version. 

I wanted to recreate the front bodice detailing as you can see above.
The back of this dress has no detailing which I was happy about.

By the time I finished the dress, the skirt felt too flimsy. On a maxi length skirt, I would have left it as is.

So the skirt was lined as well. I only lined the bodices on my previous versions of this dress.
The lining is a cotton fabric so it will hold the dress shape and allow the tencil fabric to float over it rather than float over my body.

I prefer that when the weather is hot and humid.

Having time off over Christmas has been great for stash diving those fabrics you think might just be useful one day.
