The Couture Dress »
InstructionsFitting is the most difficult step so far.
Type of item: Clothing
Fashion Fabric: Handwoven Raw Silk (Nepal) Underlining: Silk Organza (US) Lining: Silk crepe de chine (China)
What was your inspiration?
I had bought the fabric 2 years ago and had not come across the right project for it ... and of course Susan's inspirational course.
What are you most proud of?
Perservering with the fitting. Being patient and not rushing or taking short cuts. Matching stripes in the center mid-drift with a random stripy fabric.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project is immensly time consuming and specialist materials take time to arrive if you have to order from overseas. Take it slowly and enjoy doing each step as perfectly as you can manage.
