The Silk Charmeuse

Here is Paula's completed silk dress. She is at the wedding today and no doubt looking even lov
elier. I will post more later, but wanted to show this off! Drink some champagne for us

Here we have Paula's dress unadorned. She learned how to make a foundation corset complete with boning and how to do a hand roll hemmed. As mentioned in a
previous post she started with a muslin, altered her pattern based on the changes to the muslin and then went to work on the silk. This is only her 2nd time working with this lovely but tricky fabric. She no longer hates Silk charmuese I am happy to report but plans on something quick and easy for her next project. Great job Paula!
