I want to make the Gertie Malissa Variation to wear for my boyfriend’s brother wedding.
First i tought some kind of stretchy cotton, like jersey or something, but i want it to look a little more elegant.
Then i thought Stretch Satin, but i didn’t like 100% the colors i found at the store.
And at other store i saw some pretty Stretch Taffeta that came in nice colors (like a nice dark red), the fabric is not very cheap, but not extremely expensive…
the problem is that the “stretch” of the fabric is in the other way, i mean, not like jersey for example. it stretches on the long side…(i don’t know if i’m being clear :P)
and i don’t know if that could change the amount of fabric i have to buy…
what do you think?? i hope you can help me :) thanks!
