- Coordinating thread for the fabric and the bias binding
- Bias binding to finish the neckline and the hem
Below you can see how much fabric you need for all options. Fabric width = 110cm (44 inch). Please prewash your fabrics to avoid shrinkage.
The Dolores dress is perfect for light – medium weight woven fabrics like cotton, cotton lawn,… Fabrics with too much drape are difficult to hem with bias binding, so I don’t recommend those unless you finish them with a rolled hem.
NOTE: Keep in mind that fabrics with a print in one direction will turn 45° at the side seam when sewing a half circular dress.
Please prewash your fabric to avoid shrinkage.
