I’ve been wanting to make a wiggle dress for awhile! And then I stumbled across this perfect pattern (ok, maybe I searched it out..hehehehe). I bought some amazing loose weave tweed fabric from Croft Mill in the UK. It is buttery soft but I’ve never worked with a loose weave and it was quite an undertaking. Boy, oh boy!!! It’s a good thing I absolutely LOVE this fabric! I ended up underlining the entire garment so that it wouldn’t stretch too much and bound all the seams. I am still planning on making the jacket as well!
