I found this beautiful material at Morelands. It was considerably more than I would normally pay for fabric but I just had to have it and had the dress from Simplicity 1699 in mind. The roll wasn't labelled so I'm not sure what it is, but it is a fairly heavy material so I think it may be a cotton sateen, it has a slight stretch to it, so probably has some elastane in it. I finished it last week and I'm thrilled with the result. This time I put an invisible zip in instead of the normal zip called on in the pattern. I've become an invisible zipper convert.
I'm going out for High Tea on Saturday so it will make it's debut then.
