I added another drape to the Truffle dress (Colette), and underlined it with black organza. The organza makes the georgette less transparent, provides interfacing for the darts and seam allowances, and stabilizes and stiffens the slippery, drapey geogette. The dress is also fully lined with black broadcloth. My lovely double truffle won 1st. place in the County Fair sewing competition in August!
