Here it is in all its glory
learnt remembered a few things along the way:
- Dressmaking is hard
- I am fussy
- Producing the vision and quality that you have in mind takes a lot of time and effort
- I cant always just 'whip one up'
- Only make clothes for myself and my children (where it does not need to be perfect inside!
I made this dress by creating a boned corset that is the hidden structure inside the top of the dress. The corset was then pinned onto a mannequin and the fabric was draped, pinned cut and hand sewn as I went. Despite a lot of swearing whilst I was making it, I am happy with the end result.
Do you have projects where you think you can do that pretty easily and then it never is, and then you forget that until you do another one and it all comes flooding back?
