InstructionsBoning in bodice, used Susan Techniques
Dress was made in Susan'Khalje"s Couture Sewing school that she offers (Wonderful class, highly recommend others to take)
Type of item: Clothing
Wool suiting for fashion fabric Cotton underling for bodice foundation and underling of bodice Silk organza for underlining in skirt
What was your inspiration?
Was an inside joke at class but "Wes" was my inspiration.
What are you most proud of?
Loved everything about making this dress. Would follow Susan around and take all of her classes if I could. But a girl has to work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Muslin fitting a must.
Oh and would not use an uneven plaid for the first time making this dress, TRUST ME o n this. Matching all those bra cup pieces to be the same on each side is time consuming, even off a 16th of an inch will matter if you are a perfectionist in matching plaids like me.
