More Resort Tweed

I had another very kind offer today, of 2 more yards of the Resort Tweed. This will definitely give me enough to do my SWAP as originally planned, without any wondering whether I will have enough. The more I see of this fabric, the more I like it, so I'm really pleased to have all I need. If I were smart I would do a muslin of the Vogue DKNY dress before I cut it, and I probably will. Someone on Sewing World spoke about using a Saran wrapping to fit a skirt yoke, and I think that's a brilliant plan. I never have good luck with yoked skirts fitting correctly, as I'm not the standard shape. I will definitely test treating the yardage with Eucalan, and then go ahead and steam it.
