This is my daughter's wedding dress under construction. Just wanted to share the curved darts that I put into the skirt and then just sewed the start of and released as tucks. Beaded lace was then sewn over the sewn down portion of the tucks. I used curved darts to introduce fullness and 'take ups' on the skirt that she wanted without affecting the line of the skirt. Sorry about the messy picture. It wasn't meant for anybody but myself at the time. Taking Suzy Furrer's lessons has been a complete revelation and I am so excited to have found someone with such exceptional teaching skills and wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend signing up for anything she teaches.
