I am very excited about the 2 bolts of fabric I just got in! I have a bolt of white and of light blue batiste; it's lightweight but not too delicate. Many people like crisper dresses rather than true heirloom weight fabrics--and they are more affordable for smocked dresses as well which is why they are more sought out.
I made this dress for Lee's Aunt to give as a gift at a baby shower; the fabric was great to work with! It looks very nice when finished, as well!
