Mermaid - Panne' Problems
When sewing stretch fabrics into a garment that will be skin tight, it's important to test the amount of stretch you have to work with. Pam had tested one of the other fabrics and I wrongly assumed that this panne' had the same properties. The other fabrics are 4-way (you can be sure I've now tested them!) and they have six more inches of give than the velvet panne'. Fortunately there's a lot of the panne' left so I was able to cut another tail adding six inches to the original measurement around the hips. I had her try it on and it fit fine.
