Project

Japanese Bombshell

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The red japanese cotton was just perfect and it fit like a dream. I'm also proud that I struggled through the muslin and came up with a perfect fit. I almost cried, but glad I struggled though. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure the muslin fits well.

What you will need

  • Japanese cotton
  • poplin

Scheri Manson asked:
Looks great. Taking the couture dress class now but am taking the Bombshell class after. You did such a fabulous job on this you will ace the Couture dress with Susan.
CoutureAcademic answered:
Thanks so much, Scheri! Yeah, Susan's course is next on the horizon...from what I've heard it's really good. Doing the Starlet Suit Jacket now and on the lining! I think the dress turned out so well because I spent a butt load of time on fitting the muslin (and a few tears, admittedly!) On Burdastyle, Susan commented over and over again on the importance of fit and that the most frustrating thing about the Craftsy courses is that she can't see the muslin. That was the most frustrating part for me, but worth the perservearance! Can't wait to see your dress!
