Pictured, I have sewn one in a blue jacquard fabric, lined with a silk/cotton blend - the rigilene was sewn into the seams of the main fabric and I adorned the front with a bow (tutorial here). The hem was finished with a 5cm wide band of crinoline, handstitched up in place.
The printed multi-coloured Italian themed fabric is a canvas, lined with a bemberg. There is no rigilene in the seams and so the front bust can collapse/wrinkle. It is fully interfused and also finished with a crinoline hem (this one 3cm wide).
