MollyApple asked:
Your toile looks lovely, can't wait to see your finished project. May I just ask about your mannequin, is that a fitting toile that you've padded out on it to match you? Its something I've been thinking to try but not sure if it would work.
sewlovefabric answered:
hi there, thanks for your comment. to answer your question i use the cd book by kenneth d king the moulage..its to make a pattern of your measurement and hand draft it out.make a muslin then zip it over the dressform and fill it out.theres a great article in the new threads mag about this.
