    Step 1

    Fabric requirements : 1.5m 150cm wide fabric.

    The wrong side will show so choose something that looks good on both sides. Drapy fabric is needed for the garment to look good. Chiffon or georgette is a good choice.

    Fold the fabric in half along the length, and mark half way along this fold. Cut an opening from the front edge to this mark, by cutting about 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 inch from the fold, and curving to nothing at the top.

    Finish all the edges of the garment, including the front opening. The best finish is an overlocker (serger) rolled hem. When sewing around the top of the front opening, hold the fabric gathered up so the stitching will continue around the curve at the top.

    Optional – sew beads to the remaining free points to help the garment drape correctly.
