|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Cute, Retro / Vintage|
What materials did you use? Silk organza for the interlining, a sateen poplin for the dress in a green/white pattern. I may also make a second version with a purple multi-colored fashion fabric.
What are you most proud of? Just signing up for the Couture Dress class and making a project for myself! I usually sew for other people, so turning the focus on myself is new for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it! I think anyone can sew. The prep time is what puts people off, but I find the prep time (pattern adjustments, muslin-making, etc) is like solving a puzzle. Putting a dress together is like a fabric-based game of Tetris - you have to make the pieces fit!
