Oh I had a lot of fun with this one. The client is my daughter’s friend who has a wonderful curvy shape and was so enjoyable to work with. If I could dedicate myself to dramatic curves I’d be very happy.
Technical aspects: Black brocade basted onto coutil with a cotton lining. I double boned each seam. As the wearer is only 16, I wasn’t comfortable with giving her a large reduction so we just stuck with 2″ reduction. Not that it matters because she has such a great natural hip spring. I extended the top and bottom of the back for both dramatic effect and to prevent any over spill of flesh.
She is delighted and so am I.
