This dress I did for a final project in my draping class. Ever since then I am draping like a mad woman instead of flat patternmaking. I orignally made it in the brown wool blend with the slight gold flecking throughout. The second was made from beautiful wool from the local Pennelton Woolen Mill. I was lucky enough to get the fabric from my suit making teacher who was cleaning out her ‘stash’. I got one cut of it, and my friend got the other. For my birthday my friend gave me her cut, and I am so pleased! There is just the perfect girl for this dress, and I get to keep one for myself!
Wool. Yummy, Yummy wool. I love sewing with wool. Lined with organza… well shoot, all of my stuff is lined with organza! Hidden welt pockets.
