Very nice! The sideways pattern is very subtle and the bride may not even notice. I've never heard of shapewell--what is it? It sounds like you underlined the acetate with two layers, the poplin and the shapewell, is that right?

VERY pretty! Do you know the US equivalent of "shapewell" underlining? I need something like this.

The outfit looks lovely. Any chance you can post a pic with her in it? I love looking at formalwear.

Hi Amy T - Shapewell seems to be an Australian thing - it's a woven sew-in interfacing used for formalwear. It's great for fitted garments to provide structure and also to put in fabric bags. I have found it in a few weights. I think it's cotton. The acetate went on the top, the cotton underneath and the shapewell under that. Ryan's mom - hopefully i can get a picture if i didn't cause a bridal meltdown by making the pattern go the wrong way...
