With all the wrap dresses and patterns for these iconic garment I thought you might like to see inside the real Mc Coy. This week a regular client brought in her DVF dress to be shortened and a snap added to the front closure.
Inside the dress there is the ubiquitous label but I didn’t know that they now have holograms merged into them. This photo did not capture the hologram as it was pretty shiny but you can imagine it.
All the shoulder seams and back neckline have clear elastic in them:
The interfacing goes just past the fold line. The back yoke extends to the shoulder seam to be sewn into the sleeve, also with clear elastic inserted. Hang tie ribbons are attached to the underarm seam.
More silliness from the sewing room…today, I got a call from a bridesmaid needing her bodice taking in and could I do it for her before her flight tomorrow…I wanted to ask, “when did you buy the ticket” but passed her to friend who might be able to whip this out for her.
The other was a bride from India who needs alterations for a Jan 3, 2015 wedding. So some clients have no sense of time and others have so much sense they can plan into the next year. Some March brides have already called to make sure they get their slot before they are filled…good girls!
Here is a jacket class that says you will emerge with this jacket at the end of 5 hours and $45 fee. Would you pay for this class? For those who ask me what are “drag lines”…have a gander at this puppy…I only wish we could see the back view!
Don’t forget to check out the winner and loser this week at the FabricMart challenge and vote for your favorite who was able to do the best job of copying RTW…should be really interesting to see the photos up close! Last week Ann did a superb job! And is anyone following Tim Gunn and the contestants on Project Runway…that Kini does amazing work!
