I haven't been real active in the hobby for many years due to work and getting my husband through cancer.
I need some help with making a sheer dress. I have some sheer material, about 9 yards in a cotton stripe with many colors. What sort of dress might it be? I want a day dress that is light and airy, not too fussy but I don't want to look like everyone else. Is that an accurate interpretation of a sheer dress? What happened to the archives? Did we loose them again? I know we have done discussions on this before.
What I need help with is basic contruction of a sheer.
1st would it be a cotton?
2nd is the hem lined
3rd is there a standard bodice type for a sheer or could I copy a CDV or fashion plate?
I do thank you very much for your help. I am feeling lost as I haven't been in practice!
