also be added to this bodice, sewn in between the fashion fabric and the lining.

The front outside fabric can be made from virtually any material - stretch or non-stretch, as long as the back panel is made from a
stretch fabric. If the fashion fabric is done in stretch, the lining should be done in stretch as well, but if the fashion fabric is non-stretch,
then the lining can be either stretch or non-stretch.

30” X 12”. The front lining will need the same amount, and the back will need a piece approx. 25” X 10”.
