Substituting poly double knit for a woven — dart elimination?
I don’t have a lot experience sewing with knits…I’m making a Halloween costume and am substituting a polyester double knit (ponte di Roma) for the woven fabric called for by the pattern. I know that this particular double knit doesn’t have tons of crosswise stretch, but it still has some. Would it be ok to eliminate the bust dart completely from the front bodice? Or would it be better to just sew the dart? The dress isn’t meant to be close-fitting (it’s a loose A-line silhouette).
Any info would be much appreciated!
