Couture dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fit of this dress, I honestly think it is the best quality item I have sewn to date. I loved all the hand stitching and I don't think I'll ever go back to machine stitching a zipper again. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and enjoy the process.

What you will need

  • I used a crushed teal Taffeta underlined with Silk Organza .
