For a few months I considered signing up for The Couture Dress with Susan Khalje on Craftsy but kept putting it off due to time restraints. Finally I succumbed (the incentive of a very large discount pushed me over the line I must say!). I have been taking my time and have completed, to date, the following steps: marking the stitching line on the paper pattern and pinning the pattern down onto muslin. The photos show each of these steps. Today I will cut out around each pattern piece, leaving a large margin which will allow me to fit exactly to my body and create a working pattern just for me.
