(Continued from Part 1)
While Amanda was fabric shopping for her lace, I got busy with the pattern making and first muslin (a muslin is a type of fabric, it also refers to a mock-up or prototype of a garment made for fitting purposes before it's cut form the real fabric)
As you can probably tell, I didn't actually use muslin fabric for this mock-up. I used a yellow fabric that had a drape and hand similar to that of the silk charmeuse that we had decided to use for the base of the actual gown, paired with a cheap craft lace, so Amanda could really get the feeling of what a sheer overlay would be like on her true gown.
Amanda saw lots of pictures but did'n't actually see the mock-up until she tried it on at her first fitting, which I'll share, next week.
