The Couture Dress

with Susan Khalje

  • Muslin so far. For fashion fabrics
  • I'm thinking the blue silk poplin with a silk print lining. The poplin is crisp and matte and I think it will make something that's plenty dressy
  • but not so fancy I'd feel overdressed anywhere. The silk just feels lovely and what a treat to have such a fun lining!

Q&A with zinniz

Cara Michelle asked:
Congrats on making it this far! Are you doing your own tailoring?
zinniz answered:
I had a friend over to help with the fitting. It's really crucial since I can't see what's going on in the back. I got the muslin to the point of fitting very well then forgot to take a picture! Next up, I'm going to try the fuller skirt to see if it's more flattering.
Jo la Fleur asked:
Well done!!!!

Thanks!
