Step 4: Fabric Limitations can be Fun (no, really!)
For this project, I did not have quite enough cotton to use as sew-in interfacing for the huge collar that is cut on the fold. However, I managed to squeeze out two halfs plus a seam allowance. Because it is not seen , that center seam does not detract from the final design, but saved me a trip to the fabric store, and some money.
I did not have enough of my rayon print to cut out that huge collar, either, but a white rayon/silk made a beautiful lining.
"Make, Do, and Mend" is generally equated with the 1940s, but when you are dealing with the yardage required for the 1950s full skirted looks, it comes in handy.
