Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Stage Fright BurdaStyle Plus Magazine Pattern #132 Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? That I am going to tackle this advanced project with my Intermediate Beginner sewing status. Could not do this without my expert class instructor. That I stuck to it. Had to try and find the perfect pattern and fit for my body. Muslins I did 4 bodice muslins and 6 muslins of cups. Made my own bust pads. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch and do up muslins of both of the Susan and Gerties dresses. I did a Couture dress with Susan and did a muslin of a bustier with Gertie.

What you will need

  • Silk and Wool Blend Fuschia & Black Jacquard

Q&A with Scheri Manson

Janet Berry asked:
Wow Scheri this is a huge undertaking. I am tired just thinking about all your muslins! You always have the best fabric. I just bought some great silk at an Indian Fabric store in town. They sell silk in a pkg of three cordinating colors. 2 prints of 3 yards and 2 yards of a light scarf material. You might want to check it out if you have an Indian community in your area. .Hope you got some fun plans for this bomb shell dress.
