I think that the final product will be worth it, though. I've managed to change my mind four times on the outer fabric I'm using. My local fabric stores don't have much of a selection in light weight fabrics, and the fabric I got online didn't seem right once I stared at it for a few days. I do LOVE this cotton lawn print from Moda, which I got at Fabric Depot (with a 40% off coupon).
I ended up making a slip from the Little Folks voile that I got online. I used the same pattern from my Japanese book as I did with this slip.
I love the way it looks under my curtain dress...
...and I'm wearing it today with a thrifted, oversized cashmere sweater, some leggings and my trusty Uggs.
