The Juno dress is coming along. I’ve been draping the skirt.
First I needed to patch the last bits of support fabric (the dark blue) that weren’t covered because the duchesse wasn’t wide enough to drape all the way across the skirt.
I just used scraps of fabric for the patching, because it is all in areas that will be hidden by the tulle
With that all done, I sewed the back of the skirt on, and arranged the pleats:
Now, I’m sure you have all been looking at this and thinking “that doesn’t look like train on your inspiration picture!”
And no, it doesn’t. But it will. If you’ve been following my facebook page you may have an inkling of why it doesn’t look like the train above, and how it will. If you don’t follow my facebook page, you’ll have to wait a few days to find out.
I’m off to go drape some tulle now.
