I’m working on a shirtdress from Burda that calls for denim as the only fabric choice. On PR, it’s only been reviewed twice, but neither time with with denim. I found what I thought would be the perfect fabric, a stretch poplin in a gorgeous dark turquoise/peacock color at Hancock’s, but it wrinkles a lot worse than I had hoped and I’m nervous that it might be too lightweight. TBH, I was hoping to find a stretch sateen, but this poplin forced me to buy it.
Anyway, my questions are:
- I’ve heard that you can line linen and such to make it less wrinkled, since this is a summer dress, can I line the skirt only and have the same basic effect?
- Or do I need to line the whole dress?
- What should I line it with to keep it cool?
- Is poplin too lightweight to make a dress like this? I’m starting to worry…
