~ ~ ~The camisole I talk about in this show, is Part one of my 3-piece Mother-Of-The-Bride outfit. I'm also working on a lace over-blouse and a skirt.
In this show I'm begining to share with you, some of my experiences working on this ensemble.
All 3 garment pieces have involved pattern creation or alteration.
Snapshot of This Month’s Show
- Pensamientos Primeros/First Thoughts - short sewing history to date of my MOBride ensemble
Fabric is from fabric.com
I used the Jan Bones Lingerie Secrets book, to create the camisole pattern, based on my own measurements.
Original pattern was designed for knits. I made this garment from a woven golden dupioni fabric from fabric.com, so I cut the pattern on the bias.
I added 1 inch seam allowances to be on the safe side, since I was converting from a knit to a bias fabric.
