I’m new to sewing dresses (or sewing in general), so maybe this is a dumb question, but I found some fabric online and almost all the fabric has width ’44. Only the Sheath Dress I wanted to make needs ’57. Is there any way I can work around this? Or is the only option to find other fabric that is wider?
