THE SALINA JOURNAL LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 22. 2001 D6 T SEW SIMPLE Simple gown has many formal uses EUNICE FARMER King Features Dear Eunice Farmer: I'm getting married next fall, and my mother will be making my wedding gown. I'm looking for a simple gown with an off-the- shoulder neckline. I see them in ready-to-wear, but I can't find a pattern. — Katie K. Dear Katie: I have found a new pattern — Butterick 6926, size 6-22, with a perfect neckline. It has a simple, fitted bodice with a ^ drop waistline WF ^^^SB and a fuU skirt. P ^'^^M An additional pouf gives the back interest. However, this can be eliminated if you wish. I would suggest satin, Du- pioni silk or taffeta — all of which should be underlined with organza. This also is a perfect pattern for bridesmaids dresses as well as other formal gowns. Dear Eunice Farmer: I work in a fabric store, and I'm always faced with the same question. Customers complain that patterns instruct them to purchase too much fabric. They want me to sell them less than the pattern calls for Several times I have had to replace fabric because I sold them what they asked for instead of what the pattern required. Is there a way I can win this battle? — Margie K. Dear Margie: Unless the fabric is wider than what the pattern caUs for, I find patterns are fairly accurate. Wlien someone asks for less, I put a question mark after the amoimt sold — this way, I have protected myself in case the customer doesn't have enough fabric. I've also foimd that a customer often changes their mind and selects a different pattern that calls for more fabric. The cutting charts have been carefully worked out and usually are accurate. Decu: Eunice Farmer: Some time ago, I purchased several pieces of "slinky" fabric and put them away. Now I would like to make something out of them, but I can't remember if the fabric is washable. — Barb P.
