Q&A with Snazzy SewNsew

maja.s. asked:
that looks fantastic, well done and have fun with your silk!!!
Snazzy SewNsew answered:
Thank you. The dress is actually being made out of a floral linen blend fabric. The silk organza is an underlining that goes in between the linen and the lining. All new to me and I'm looking forward to the whole process.
Davesmom asked:
Looks like you have the fit down patt.
Snazzy SewNsew answered:
Thank you! It took a while but I think I got it in the end. Fine tuned it slightly more since the photos were taken. :)

Thank you - I am loving the process very much. I cut out and traced my silk organza tonight.
