2011: the year of the gown
After one my friends said “yes” to the ultimate question about a week ago and asked me yesterday if I was up to sew her wedding dress (she insists it won’t be a gown), I’ll probably make my first muslin in 2011. The wedding should take place in about a year so we have time but I’m fretting already. She visited today, sifted through my Burdas and picked this, from the 11-2007 issue:
I can do this. I can really do this. I could even turn cute. She wants the neckline about 5 cm (2 inches) lower and is undecided as to whether to add sleeves or not. The dress comes with an all-in-one facing but no lining. No lining?!? I think we’ll want to line it but I’ll make the muslin unlined and sleeveless first. I just need to get some cheap cotton. Does anybody know of a good SBA tutorial on a darted bodice?
Edit: I already have a great tutorial on drafting a sleeve.
