fabric question

Hi there,

Planning on making the French Vest Bodice and the TV 382.
Last year I bought 10 yrds of a really nice flower printed cotton voile. Also have some natural colored cotton sateen which I want to use for the underskirt.
Would the cotton voile be a good choice for the outfit? I do have plenty of cotton organdy and silk organza for lining the sheer cotton.
What do you think?
Any input is welcome!

Thanks :bounce:

No reason why you can't use it. I just made a printed lawn 1880's dress last year. The bodice will be flatlined anyway, so that is not a problem. And the overskirt doesn't need lining, so it can be light and sheer over the underskirt.

Awesome! Was hoping not to have to flatline the drapery add on!
Thanks Heather! :D
