What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the entire video. Downloads class materials, gather all you need for your couture dress then work along with Susan. Check that your fashion fabric, underling and lining will work together. Post a questions and confirm with Susan before you start to cut. I did not and I ended cutting a stretch taffetta that just dosen't work with silk organza underlining. So I am thinking about using linen with the silk organza underlining.

Like how' you're using a contrasting fabric for the center piece. That will look really cool.

Thank you Susan. I hope it added a new flair kind of a color block feel and help to create a smaller silhouette
