Leopard Print Couture Dress

Added Apr 14, 2012

Portsmouth, Unit...






I have just finished a Craftsy online course; The Couture Dress by Susan Khalje. This is the dress I made. It’s a really great course and I will use the couture techniques in any future projects I undertake.

The dress is from the Vogue pattern that came with the course.

Material Notes

The dress is a silk/cotton mix with silk underlining and silk charmeuse lining.




Garment Type
Organza, Silk

    I bought this course, dying to learn the techniques, but the pattern didn’t excite me-kinda blah. But this version is so VA VA VOOM! It looks amazing!! Guess it goes to show, the choice in fabric can make all the difference.
