Hi Everyone! Let's talk about - Specialty Fabrics! Red carpet dresses, princess costumes, tutus, tuxedos, and whimsical styles are all on the agenda for this topic! Silk Dupioni, Shantung, Chiffon, and Challis.... I love working with these types of fabrics, they bring such an authentic look and feel to the garments. Each piece truly becomes "Fashion in Miniature"! Working with these delicate, slippery fabrics may be intimidating for some, but the results are so breathtaking, I urge you to take that daring step and try something new!
My hope is that after this course, you will no longer fear these delicate fabrics and have the confidence to choose a beautiful piece of fabric for your doll garment when desired!
Are you ready? Let's go...
In the videos posted below, I share with you an overview of the month-long topic, a detailed look at recommended tools, share fabric and pattern cutting tips, and then take a deep dive into different fabrics, and share some examples. I hope this will encourage and inspire you to break out of your comfort zone and sew with these beautiful fabrics!
