Herringbone Couture Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I stuck with it and took my time to do the best job that I could. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My advice echos that of many others: watch & re-watch the lessons, take your time and do not rush. Enjoy the sewing process.

What you will need

  • The fashion fabric is a wool / polyester blend in a very small herringbone pattern. (This doesn't show up well in the digital photos.) The lining is a black rayon / polyester blend.
