What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learn as much as you can on fit. Go online, book..to learn to identify your fitting issue. Take your time. This class is not hard but it does involve alot of work. Its worth it.

Susan, I am so excited to be in your on-line class! I would be with you in a live class if I could; this is the next best thing. I am expecting to learn lots! Thank you!

thank you so much for sharing your photos - this one and the one with the horsehair in the hem. Today I cut out my muslin and I've been concerned about how the skirl will look and hang. Seeing your muslin made up is encouraging - it looks wonderful!

I love this and the hem length is perfect.

Your toile looks lovely, can't wait to see your finished project. May I just ask about your mannequin, is that a fitting toile that you've padded out on it to match you? Its something I've been thinking to try but not sure if it would work.

Thank you so much for the reply, the CD book sounds really interesting, I remember hearing about it ages ago, it had escaped my memory. It sounds really useful and your modified dressform looks great, I'll have to give it a try. Are you signed up for Kenneth's course on here? I love just watching him work, and the same with Susan, they're very inspirational.
