I made my Fatina in white stretch cotton with fine embroideries and stripy wrinkles on it. Because I realized that the muslin in my regular size was apparently bigger than I needed, and also because my fabric has some elasticity, I cut my fabric in much smaller size (34). I also shortened the length by 6cm. I didn’t use bias strips for the armholes, but attached the facings. I have put the narrow black pipings on the armholes, collars, and hem as well.
The dress was very simple to make, but piping hems took so much patience and time. I generally enjoyed the process to finish, and am very satisfied with the result. Though pipings are optional on Fatina dress and you might barely see the tiny piping of mine at all, I like them on this dress.
ivory cotton with some stretch, slightly sheer.
