Factors to Consider for Dress Making

Everyone has been to a shop, purchased a dress and when worn, it can be scratchy and uncomfortable! If you have moved away from shop bought items and have decided to make your own summer dress, there are a few factors to take into consideration when buying your dressmaking fabrics:

  • Fabric must be comfortable to wear – you aren’t going to be wearing something that is itchy or uncomfortable!
  • Be sure the fabric is breathable
  • Consider the fabrics weight – the weight of fabric will affect how it drops and flows. If you want something free flowing, long and lightweight, your choice of fabric must reflect this.
  • Think about what the dress is for…. work, holiday, or casual wear? – If your dress is for work, you may consider a Jersey fabric to bring a clean, crisp look to your dress in comparison to a holiday feel that is lightweight, free flowing and bold in colour.
