I recently took a class on www.craftsy.com with Susan Khalje on how to sew a couture dress. Most of the dress is handsewn, including the zipper. Including the two muslins I made, this was a 60 hour dress!
AND I’m DONE!
This is Burda 11/2011-123. I downloaded from the burdastyle site. Adjustments I made: took in waist 1”, took out hips 2”, brought front shoulder in 1”, raised hem 3”, raised front neckline 3”, raised back neckline 2”.
The fashion fabric is wool crepe, underlning is silk organza, and lining is rayon. This was not a cheap dress to make!
Now I just need to find some bling to match
