Couture Dress

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I have seen a LOT of very textured garments this season and until I watched Susan's video course all the way through, didn't have enough courage to select such fabrics for myself. I haven't been this excited about making something for myself since I was young and still had a waist.

What you will need

  • Lace (Cotton
  • Nylon) for the bodice and sleeves; Linen/Cotton for the skirt and midriff

Q&A with Renee_Martin

K Lee 2Strings asked:
I'm sure it will turn out beautifully. Be sure to post it when you've finished it. I love that feminine styles have come back into fashion.
Renee_Martin answered:
I know what you mean. After I posted this, I started to daydream about creating a hat to go with my dress (linen crown/band with bias covered cord (like the dress), silk organza brim). Hats are still popular across the pond for special occassions, but haven't been as popular in the states since I was a kid.
Davesmom asked:
I love the colors and fabric you have choosen. My colors!
Renee_Martin answered:
Mine too!! I view hot pink as my power color and as my hair gets grayer, I like that color even better.
Essoblu asked:
are the dress pattern sizes American or UK on the sign up page?
Renee_Martin answered:
I logged in from the US, so the sizes available to me were American.
