Wedding Gowns 101
Instructor: Susan Khalje
Susan Khalje

If ever the phrase "divide and conquer" applied, this is the time and the place! And while the end result of sewing a wedding gown is spectacular and full of all the best emotions, it can be a little intimidating. Like all garments, it is the sum of its parts -- no more, no less. And while some of those parts are unfamiliar, they're not difficult, and once divided into a number of manageable steps, the project becomes an exciting and rewarding challenge.

So, we're going to take a look at the elements of a wedding gown -- showing you what you need to know. Let's begin with a quick overview of what we think is essential:

1. the muslin
2. fabrics
3. under linings
4. boning
5. lace
6. closures
7. bustling

Each of the above will be given its own lesson; in some cases, there are samples from your kit to further guide you. A class kit will include fabric samples for fashion fabrics and under linings, boning samples, lace samples, bridal buttons and button loops.

Class is a combination of PDF downloads, boards and Interactive real time chat sessions with the instructors.
