Project

Aunty Erna'sDancing Dress

What are you most proud of? fitting - there were alot of adjustments and the dress is snug but still allows full movement for dancing. What advice would you give someone starting this project? the heavier raw silk was alot easier to work with than the fine liberty cotton of my mothers dress - I would suggest using a looser heavier fabric like wool, linen or raw silk as it is easier to work with than finer weave fabrics.
