I've been watching you put this together on your blog! What a fabulous dress. I've got the muslin for this one cut out. You did a tremendous job!

Tany, what a lovely dress! This is so stylish and, wow, those shoes look fantastic and such a perfect match for this garment! I couldn't agree more about the value of sewing up a muslin before commencing. I love your advice about being meticulous with the hidden details because that's what really makes special clothes really special.

Very nice looking dress, the muslin was totally worth it in terms of fit. But I really don't understand the value of interfacing either an entire dress, or a poly blend??

Tany said...
fuzzygalore: The fabric I used is really thin, it wrinkles a lot and I thought that underlining the dress to provide more body to it would be a good idea. I could have used traditional methods to underline the dress but this very thin knit fusible interfacing produced the effect that I had in mind. With another fabric or with another pattern (more fluid dress) this procedure wouldn't be necessary. Thank you all for your kind words!

Very pretty dress. It would be nice to have a full review here rather than a synopsis with a link to another site.

Tany, the inside work on your dress is just gorgeous! I bet it makes you feel just as beautiful inside and out. Great work!

Tany ~ I have been following along with your construction on your blog. It is a beautiful and well made dress!

Marji said...
Tany, the results are fantastic. I need to respectfully disagree with Liz, the documentation on your blog of putting this dress together is so thorough that it would be impractical and impossible to put it all into the scope of a review here. Thank-you for all the time you put into documenting the process making this.
