The Couture Dress »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Classic, Retro / Vintage
I'm using fabrics from my stash for this project. The teal is a slightly stretchy poly/rayon. The print is a poly charmeuse I got from Jo-Ann's.
What was your inspiration?
The teal Maria Pinto dress Michelle Obama wore to the 2008 Democratic National Convention was my inspiration for this project.
What are you most proud of?
So far, I am most proud of my sticking with the muslin process. Fitting my figure has been a process, but I hope the end result will be well worth it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Two pieces of advice so far: You will learn a lot and hang in there!
