A departure - Kenneth King Moulage

I was away this weekend participating in the Kenneth King Moulage class.  Well I finally have patterns that fit.  The moulage is supposed to fit like a second skin (without ease), and I'll be stuffing my dress form, so I can finally start draping again.



This is not the final, just the first draft, so I'll go back and tweak the shoulders and armhole a bit.  So I am really excited to be in a position to finally have a good foundation for stuffing my dress form.  To begin draping all of those grecian inspired dresses I've been lusting after.  Really exciting!!

If you ever have the opportunity to attend the Moulage course, I totally endorse it.  The only disappointment was at the end of day three, we were done ;(.  I've put the Sleeve & Pant CD books on my Christmas list.  As I've said before, I need clothes!!

Wow, what a great opportunity! I am so impressed! Just yesterday I was padding up "Bertie" because I have developed some fluff. Please keep us informed of your process. I have never considered taking the course, but this looks amazing. In the meantime, I'll make do.

Kenneth is really a master. I took a class with him one year ago, and I learned so much.

Whoa! That looks like a pretty close fit...how did you ever get it zipped up? You will have the perfect dress form when you are done.

Weirdly, it's not that tight.... ok, I wouldn't be able to wear it for 8 hours but for zipping up it was good.

wow I never even thought about putting a zip in the back so it's easy to change here and there.. I've been tooing and froing over making one lately myself.

My head was ready to explode at the end of Day 3. :-) But it was a truly fabulous weekend. I told Kenneth he's probably saved hundreds of dollars worth of fabric from ruin. I never knew how big an impact my spinal curvature had on getting things to fit until I saw it laid out in black and white (and blue, and red, and...)

Now if I can only find some time to draft and sew from it!

I saw the photo's and story of your class on the PR site, looks like you all had a very busy week end. Did I see the YSL 2410"s being worn in a photo???? Georgeous.

I have a collection of fabrics that have been on my too precious to cut list. I hope this will save them :)

No I was wearing the 1186, I took the 2410's with me but it was too cold to wear them. It actually snowed in the wee hours Sunday morning, so not tropical wool weight weather...brrr
