The Couture Dress »
InstructionsFitting takes time but is worth it for a great dress
Type of item: Clothing
at the muslin point. dress will be made using a Maggy London floral cotton
What was your inspiration?
The opportunity to learn from Susan Khalje. I need the visual learning style and Susan makes it all seem like it is doable.
What are you most proud of?
Getting a very nice fit on the bust. It may not look like it on the dress form, but after several attempts, the top fits beautifully. Plus size fitting is so challenging that I plan to use this muslin with thread tracing method often.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch all the videos so you know and understand where you are going. Also, take your time. If you get frustrated, walk away. Listen to Susan's warning about the wax - it can be messy.
