Finding the right fabric for you project can be really tricky. The same pattern can turn out completely different with different fabrics. For a sewing newbie this can be one of the most difficult challenges. How do you recognise a light fabric with some drape? Or a thick firm fabric? How do you know which is the right fabric? In this blogpost I will show the difference fabric choice can make for the dolman style Odette Top by La Maison Victor. The pattern instructions call for a knit fabric. This leaves a lot of options. I decided to make this top in two different fabrics. Though both knit, their characteristic are very different: a firm cotton jersey and a thin rayon jersey. The two tops turned out quite different.
