    I am making the dress out of woven fabric–top and bottom–how much fabric is needed for the top and how much for the bottom?

    Are you using fabric from your stash or shopping specifically with this dress in mind Lynda?

    Generally what I do when I am figuring out how much fabric is required, is to lay some out (in alot of cases I audition fabric and check to see if I have enough that way) and place the pattern pieces on top to try and fit them.

    You would need enough fabric for the bodice pieces, facings and sleeves for one lot of fabric and enough for the skirt for the other piece of fabric.

    Having not made the size three in this pattern, I am not able to give you exact measurements but I would have a bit of a guess by saying it would probably be half the specified yardage on the envelope?

    Sorry to not be of more help than that.
