    This pattern and voile are both new to me — any suggestions? Good idea? Or is the voile too thin? We’ll use it as a pajama top (inspired by one of the recent photos on Flickr, thank you!) so it doesn’t need to look as crisp as it would for daytime wear, but I wonder if I should use a different fabric for the facings. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Voile is a perfect choice. I made one entirely in voile (facings, ruffles, everything) and had no problems. http://www.flickr.com/photos/23557464@N03/6968551522/in/set-72157629901874815

    Voile would be dreamy. Use a light interfacing if you are concerned.

    I made one all in voile last summer too. My daughter loved it!! I interfaced the yoke/facing pieces. It did make it easier to neatly turn those edges under.

    Thanks for the advice and encouragement! Fabric is now cut and I’m just about ready to start sewing. I think I’ll try some interfacing. Should I do both the yoke and the facing, or just one or the other?

    Lovely photos, roundtheworldgirl and mcholley1! Thanks for sharing the links!

    Traditionally the interfacing is used on the facing.

    A very soft interfacing like sheerweft would be lovely with a voile.

    It worked! And I can’t wait to use voile again — it was lovely. I was intimidated by this pattern for so long, but as is always the case with O+S patterns, the instructions were great and it went together beautifully.

    I did use interfacing, and by mistake I used it on the yoke instead of the facing. It actually worked really well that way so I’ll call it a lucky accident!

    Thanks for your help, everyone!

    Oh well done!

    I often interface the right side and not the facing. I think if you use a good quality interfacing that won’t bubble it is fine.

    Off to have a peep!
