Absolutely gorgeous. I am in awe. Beats my poor sewing skills to death. Where did you go to school? Amazing. Good luck with future endeavors. Are you heading to project runway?

Thank you so much Smiley I took a BA in Costume making at The Arts University College at Bournemouth Smiley I'm not planning to enter the Project Runway. Fashion isn't really my thing.. But I love watching it on Tv Smiley

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

This is so awesome. I love it!

On a really nerdy point, it made me really happy to read that you went to a museum to study the original! I work in the costume & textile department at a museum in Norwich and we get so few uni students using the collections and resources we have available, despite having an art college offering fashion courses in the city! It's really great to hear of someone using museum costume as inspiration! Cheesy

Thank you Smiley

From one nerd to another Smiley
Using the museum and the original dress as research was my favorite part of the project - apart from seeing my finished dress on my model of course Smiley It was almost like a rush to stand there and study this really old dress and I kept trying to imagine the person who made it and the bride who wore it Smiley It was also really interesting to see technical solutions I hadn't considered before. I would have really loved to work in a textile/costume department in a museum Smiley It's a real shame that students aren't using the resources more..
