Underlining crepe-backed satin
would organza do the trick?

I am making a bridesmaid dress for myself as I am going to be the only bridesmaid for my mother-in-law's wedding in 3 month's time.

I am using Butterick 5457 - which is a bit of a tricky pattern to say the least. One of the things that I realised from my toile was that one layer of the lining pieces that the pattern asks you to cut is actually used as underlining.

So for the actual dress, I am planning on using silk organza as the underlining for a lovely crepe-backed satin. I know that the satin is rather thick, and because of the crepe-back I wouldn't choose to underline it. but for this pattern this will be necessary because of all the pleats in the bodice.

My question here is, would silk organza be a good choice for it? would it actually do much? if not, I would be inclined to use a cotton poplin/broadcloth as it's much cheaper (and save my organza for some beautiful silks instead).

I also had a few more questions on the construction and the design of this patten - if you have a minute please do feel free to pop over to my blog post and let me know what you think

I would lean towards underlining in silk crepe de chine instead. You'd lose the drape of the skirt with organza. You can use organza for the bodice though.

Thank you Nancy

I am only going to underline the bodice sections, but line and underline (using the technique with a hong kong finish) the skirt instead. Silk crepe de chine sounds like a good idea for the skirt.
