I just finished Pip. I made it from some fabric I’ve had forever, and it was a royal pain in my patootie to sew this. It slipped and slid everywhere! I wanted drape and oh boy I got it! Pip has a ton of gathers in front but the back is cut from a single piece of fabric and has very little going on. For that reason it‘s really a pattern for super lightweight fabric. Silk organza—which it is pictured in On the pattern—is probably ideal. I thought my fabric to be very lightweight, but with so much fabric in front it tends to want to pull down in the front Since there is not nearly as much fabric weighting it in the back. All that noted I am determined to wear this after battling for hours with this demented fabric! I wanted to spank it and send it to bed without dinner!
