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.
