Are you planning to make a special gown with a structured bodice for a wedding or evening function and you feel you need a little extra help? If you live in the UK, I am running a 'Boned Bodice' workshop at my Sewing Academy in the Staffordshire Moorlands and it might be just what you need to create that perfect dress. Whether you are using a fine silk fabric or a rich velvet I'll teach you a formula to construct a firm, crinkle-free bodice that will fit like a glove and make you look amazing. It is so easy when you know how. For more information take a look at my website www.lornaknight.com and get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
