The Sheath Dress Fabric Suggestions

The beautiful Sheath Dress! Such a great beginners project or quick sew for those seasoned seamstresses! You will love making this dress so much there are bound to be a few versions in your wardrobe!

The one thing to note is that, if you are making the three quarter sleeve, your fabric width needs to be at least 128cm wide. Now, although that rules out quite a few fabrics there are some gorgeous wide fabrics on the market. We’ve found a few for you that are more than 128 wide so get ready to fall inlove!
