Fabrics – Light to medium weight wovens are suitable for both the main and lining fabrics for this ladies boho dress sewing pattern. However, your fabric choice will be critical to how the garment fits and moves so please choose with your end look in mind.
*Main Fabric – A light weight woven such as a chiffon, organza, or georgette will be billowy and floaty looking, and may be see-through (or require a slip underneath for coverage).
A light to mid weight woven such as a cotton lawn, cotton voile, linen, silk, rayon challis, silk crepe, bubble crepe, crepe de chine, double gauze or silk satin will drape.
*Lining fabric – The lining will be used on the inside of the bodice only. If you are using a very sheer fabric you may wish to line the dress tiers as well. It needs to be a light- to medium-weight woven fabric. Suitable fabrics include Habotai (silk or polyester), poly anti-static lining, cotton, quilting cotton, and satin.
If you use a fabric with a print or nap such as velvet, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.
See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
