I made this for Sister #2 for Christmas using View D of Simplicity 2892 and polyester charmeuse from Jo-Ann's that reminded me of an impressionist painting. The sides seams are French but I did use my serger to finish the hem before hemming narrowly.
Sullivan's Spray Stabilizer with this slippery fabric and I couldn't be happier with the results! After I treated the fabric with the spray it had the feel of crisp taffeta instead of slippery satin charmeuse so it was much easier to handle and work with. Once I washed the finished garment it returned to its original softness.
