    Does anyone have any ideas about whether you could make this dress with a non-stretch fabric? I want to make my friend a dress for her birthday but already have the (non-stretch) material for it. But this dress looks perfect! Would I give extra allowances somewhere to make up for it being non-stretch, or is this just a no-no? Apologies, I’m a complete novice. Thanks in advance for any advice.
