Project

Scheri's Couture Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I am slowing down and enjoying the Couture process. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the entire video. Downloads class materials, gather all you need for your couture dress then work along with Susan. Check that your fashion fabric, underling and lining will work together. Post a questions and confirm with Susan before you start to cut. I did not and I ended cutting a stretch taffetta that just dosen't work with silk organza underlining. So I am thinking about using linen with the silk organza underlining. Check my progress at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/scheri_sews/

What you will need

  • Muslin
  • tracing paper
  • silk thread. silk organza

Q&A with Scheri Manson

sflynnie asked:
Muslin looks great--I have not started yet. Do you have a fitting friend or do you use a dress form?
Scheri Manson answered:
I am taking a sewing class so I bring it to class and have fitted by instructor. I do have a dress form but find a better fit when I use myself.
Scheri Manson asked:
Today I will on the lining. Monday I will take to my class to confirm fit, zipper, hem etc. Hope to be completed by end of the next week.
Scheri Manson answered:
Effie Bee see you online with me doing the Sassy Blouse. How is that project going? Did you do the stitiching course? Would you recommend?
Susan_K asked:
Like how' you're using a contrasting fabric for the center piece. That will look really cool.
Scheri Manson answered:
Thank you Susan. I hope it added a new flair kind of a color block feel and help to create a smaller silhouette
