Shantung is kind of a silly sounding word, it is a type of fabric that I have never sewn with before. When I had the samples of dress fabric in the store the other day I stumbled on a remnant that I liked with it. (bummer that the remnant wasn’t enough it was $2.50!) so I looked until I found a bolt of the same fabric.


The color is called pewter but is more of a light to medium grey I got a yard and a half since I will be adding 3/4 sleeves. I will probably use the less shiny side for the bolero, but I have been known to hoard fabric (lol) so IF I don’t like it with the finished dress I will make my daughter a holiday dress with it. No matter what I make with it I should have enough lining leftover from the lining I got from the dress.
