A friend would like to take a favorite knit long dress and create a pattern that can be used to make a woven-fabric dress. The original dress is made of a midweight cotton with a small amount of lycra. She wants to use the pattern to make an identical dress in a woven silk/poly charmeuse.
Do you have any tips or warnings for
a) creating the pattern while factoring in the stretch of the original fabric
b) converting from a knit to a woven?
