The view of the dress she wants is the halter on the right - minus the bow that they put on the bodice. The fabric is from my stash (she is adamant that the volume of fabric gets diminished.) The piece she chose is only just over a metre but it's 60 inches wide, navy polyester blend (so it doesn't wrinkle) with a big houndstooth check in the weaving. I'll show you when it's done. We cut the paper pattern and I roughly laid it on the fabric to see if it was enough and it is. I do think it needs a bit of lining fabric though.
