pin cushion

You will need

1.10 yard (1m) of 44’’ – 45’’ (115cm) wide lining (or you can use the same fabric as your dress if you have enough of it. That would be a good choice for this flowy fabric as it will ensure a good drape on the bust gathers). A 40cm invisible zipper. You will also need some strips of interfacing or organza to stabilize seams that are on the bias, to prevent any stretching (or you can buy iron-on stabilizing tape).
