I am going to start on this next week and if you want to follow along, I will post pictures as I go. I am not exactly sure what kind of fabric this is. It is a very stretchy knit that I found at JoAnns in the Red tag section. Even marked down it was very pricey at $12.00 a yard. I liked the little ruffles on it and I am hoping it has a slimming effect, not the other way around. Sometimes you just never know what you will end up with when you sew!! Here is a picture of the material and the pattern! I am thinking about having the ruffle run up and down even though most of the stretch is in the other direction. I think this way it will be more slimming. Anyone have any other suggestions?
