I love stretch bengaline. It’s stetchy, but stiff enough to hold in wobbly bits.
I made this dress for my sister’s wedding in January this year. I constructed the whole pattern myself, and it took AGES. I wont be doing that again.
The birds, Dodo and Noodle, are my little helpers, who chew up my patterns and crap on my fabric.
white stuff is really expensive wedding dress satin – i should have checked the price tag before i got the lady to cut it :(
