Evening gown of crinkle lurex organza (80% metal/20% silk in black/silver)
I chose to use the vintage evening skirt pattern for the small train it had. I cut it in four pieces (two back and two front) versus three (two back and one front) due to the narrow 36" width of the crinkle organza
I modified the bodice pattern by cutting the bodice front in two pieces. I did this so as to maintain the direction of the fabric grain as opposed to cutting it in one piece on the bias per the original instructions
Narrow hemming this gown went like a dream due to all of the ease in the crinkle organza.
To obtain opacity in order to conceal seam lines and seam allowances, I interlined each organza piece with silver china silk. I narrowly hemmed the interlining separately from the organza. The gown was also fully lined in the same silver china silk.
