Choose a light to medium-weight, non-stretch fabric. Depending on the desired result, you can select either a low-drape fabric or a fabric with a little drape. Cotton, linen, Tencel and rayon shirtings or dress-weight fabrics are recommended. You can cut the binding from your fabric or choose a premade binding. If your fabric is light or drapey, interface the pocket openings of the dress using fusible interfacing.
