i got this fabric at darn cheap fabrics on a recent trip to melbourne (the trip was to see the afl grand final, but being a sydney swans fan the highlight of my trip was probably my 5 minute dcf visit). its a polyester knit with minimal stretch that goes up and down the fabric as i have placed it. personally i think the pattern would look a little odd if i had put the stretch cross ways.
construction is the same as my other 2054 dresses e.g. shoulder and side seams, back darts (i added these myself as the pattern does not contain them) and hems. pretty easy. for this dress i had to let the side seams out to almost nothing to make up for the lack of stretch.
i did cut some 3/4 sleeves the same as my jaywalk dress, but when i tried it on after stitching the side and shoulder seams i decided to go with a sleeveless dress instead. i think this will work well for hotter weather given that the fabric is polyester and the dress is close fitting.
now having seen the pics of the dress on me, for future makes i will take a bit more of a curve out of the front armhole.
although i am keen to try some other knit dress patterns i can see a few more of these being made for summer, particularly as they only take a few hours to knock up.
