What was your inspiration?
I loved this class. Susan does a brilliant job breaking down the couture techniques into manageable steps. But when you look back and realise that you've made a beautifully fitted dress with all the trimmings. Underlining in silk organza was a revelation to me and I'll be doing that a lot from now on.
What are you most proud of?
I had a jacket that needed a plain black dress. This dress can go from work to evening functions with the switch of a jacket and fitted the bill perfectly. As an added bonus, the dress won second prize in the LBD category of the 2012 Royal Adelaide Show.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Making a couture dress is mainly logical, but you do need to allow yourself plenty of time.
