My Moulage (dress form)

So I've finished my dress form cover, and slipped into it to try it, then slipped it on the dress form.  I still have some stuffing to do, but I'm really excited about it.  I cut it out of a canvas I had purchased to make a slip cover for my sofa.  This is much better use of the fabric.

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!!
