The Couture Dress »
InstructionsI followed the instructions from the class except I added a slit in the back of the skirt.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage
Cotton dress, muslin lining, satin lining, lace hem tape
What was your inspiration?
I so wanted a close-fitting dress like Joan on Mad Men. Not quite there, but I think I learned some things that I can get there in the next project.
What are you most proud of?
I love, love, love the lapped zipper. I had never done one before and this looks fantastic. I think I will always put zippers in by hand instead of by machine in the future. It is so much easier to control!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't skimp on the muslin and fitting steps.
Here are more photos of my project on my blog:
