Description

First attempt at draping, using the Paul Gallo ’ Fashion Draping: Dressmaking Basics’ course on Craftsy.

Material Notes

Ah, the wonderful Ikea. Probably furnishing fabric. Realistically a little heavy-duty for a summer frock but nice and structured to work with.

    Nice dress and good fit. I love the pink belt’s touch. It really brings out the beauty of the fabric.

      Thank you! Yes, it’s just a bit blah without a splash of something, I think. I’m not good at understated.

      Aw, thank you, Martin! I didn’t use a book, it’s an online course – you should be able to track it down here, if you’re interested: http://www.craftsy.com/classes/sewing
      It’s really excellent. Paul is a very calm teacher and makes it all (fairly!) straightforward. Hugely recommended if you’re interested in draping.
