|Vogue 1422 I love the simple lines, especially for summer|
I have a couple of projects in the works. And may do some brief posts on them. I also have some that I have finished, that may also get a brief post.
I am currently cutting out patterns for
dresses that I want to make. Most of them are going to be made from stash fabrics.

that I am using for this. Looking at the pattern, the way the organza is used will be pretty cool. Another lining is for lining the skirt, under the organza layer. I am debating on using silk habotai or woven cotton from my stash.
The lining that baffles me is the stretch mesh for the bodice lining. When I put the facing, bodice lining, and fashion fabric pattern pieces together, the inside and outside were exactly the same size. The markings and cut lines all looked exactly the same size. The inner stretch mesh lining would not have room to stretch without putting stress on the outer fashion layer. I am imagining that the inside would also be uncomfortable and not breath while possibly stretching out and causing bunching and visible lines. I am considering making the lining out of either a woven cotton or silk habotai unless there is a good reason to use the stretch mesh.
I emailed Vogue Patterns early Friday evening, so I will have to wait until next week for their reasoning.
Has anyone made Vogue 1422?
How would you approach this?
