Dupion silk dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud I managed to stick with it and finish it. I was a massive job and I only had an hour and a half sleep on the night before the wedding because I was working solidly through the night to complete it. I'm also very pleased that it fits like a glove, the open back is a perfect close fit and doesn't gape at all and that's due to the careful fitting of the muslin What advice would you give someone starting this project? Manage your time better than I did. It took much much longer than sewing something with standard techniques but it was a very enjoyable process. This dress needs extremely careful fitting so that the back doesn't gape. I did two muslins for the bodice because I made so many alterations to the first one I wanted to cut a second off it just to make sure that it was going to fit perfectly
