Creating my own pattern.
Pattern pieces all draped and cut.
Marking the skirt for each color section
Cutting out my fabric.
Fitting the cut pieces on my mannequin.
What materials did you use?
I am using Merino wool knits for this project. Red, light ivory, and black.
It is a very soft and drapey wool, so very comfortable.
Funny, but true story: I do not have a mannequin specifically sized for me, but I have a female mannequin( sz.8) and a male mannequin torso ( who knows what size). My body measurements fell between the two mannequins, so I used the both of them to help create this dress ( lol). Now, what's funny is I've lost a bit of weight, so I'm having to resize and make adjustments before I can finish. Looking to finish it in the next couple of weeks, hopefully. ;o)
I like your pattern. Is the material woven or stretch? Your mannequin fitting looks easy. Love the colors you have chosen.
Thanks Davesmom, the fabric is a stretchy, it is a merino wool knit. It is so very comfortable.
Nice material!! Lovely dress.
I like this dress.
