Beautiful job!! I teach sewing to students after school ages 11-14.  What patience.  I made this dress for a fromal for one of my daughter's friends. We did the buttonholes with the ribbon lacing and it was beautiful. Here's my question. If you just sewed the ribbons down, how did you get in and out of the dress? We had a zipper under the lacings, and I assume you did, but I can't figure out, if you actually tacked the ribbons down, how'd you open the zip?  Just curious. Your teacher, friend and you should be proud!!

Beautiful! and I don't know if anyone said anything but I believe the mock up is called Twaling (or something like that). I call it a muslin.

Wow, very nice! I actually like that you didn't make holes for the ribbon lace up, it looks a lot neater your way.
I love the straight lines and the width of the skirt. Did you wear a tulle underskirt, or does the dress just fall that way?
It fits you like a glove!

So beautiful and elegant, especially for a younger gal (that's a good thing). So many gowns for girls are just poofy and obnoxious. That dress makes you look like a star.

I adore the back.

I have a question: does the ribbon can be tightened or loosened in the corset look on the back to fit the body if somehow you gain or lose weight?
The pattern actually calls for button holes on the back, so you can tighten and loosen them slightly but they don't really do much except look pretty. Mine were sewed down so I couldn't adjust them at all.

If you just sewed the ribbons down, how did you get in and out of the dress? We had a zipper under the lacings, and I assume you did, but I can't figure out, if you actually tacked the ribbons down, how'd you open the zip?

The zip was actually on the right hand side of the dress Tongue Which was great because I don't know what I would have done with the lacing and everything otherwise lol.

I did have a layer of tulle underneath. I tried to get it as close to the blue on the back as possible. I thought it looked great when I stepped or pulled the skirt up slightly and you could see this flash of blue Wink


Thanks Cheesy

I'm sure someone's posted it already, but I'm too sleepy to run through 9 pages of replies!  The mockup can be called a toile, a mockup, or a muslin...depending on where you're from and who you learned from. Smiley

You did a great job on that dress, too. It looks professional, and it fits you SO well!! Congrats Smiley
