So, I'm excited about attempting to sew my own dress for my Retro Prom birthday party. There's just once hitch: rumor has it that chiffon is incredibly difficult to sew with.
I read about the difficulties on the internet (how did we ever live without Google? Seriously.). Then I ran into my neighbor and her mom at a vintage shop. Her mom also warned me not to use chiffon.
I really, really like chiffon because it's so fluffy and bouncy. (Yes, I sound pathetic, even to myself.). It just seems to lend itself so well to the type of dress I want to create. Maybe it's because I'm stuck on that yellow dress. I'm having trouble moving beyond it and imaging a different fabric.
Any tricks for sewing with chiffon? Or recommendations about another type of fabric that would work well?
