I'm planning to make a 50's inspired dress, which means fitted bodice and full circle skirt. This particular shape I find very flattering to any body shape.Of course it's not gonna look like anything like the Christian Dior work of art up there. But the general silhouette is pretty much the same. In few years, maybe I would be able to recreate something like CD satin dress, in few more years. More technique shall be acquire to make this kind of masterpiece. Anyway, today I finally learn to make French seams. It's a simple technique, but a winner in making the dress inside looks awesome.
Enough on the CD dress, back to the toile. I made the whole thing from RM3/metre fabric. Since it's only the bodice that's need to be fitted, I simply attached a circle skirt I made before this to complete the whole dress. Hooray for smart idea.
More pic to show how fitted it was.
