The Making.........

Production Process

After I had done the patterns for the dress I did a layplan. This was to give me a better idea about how much fabric I needed. I had 1.6m of natural calico from Green Fibres-Totnes. I placed my patterns on the facric in the same position and drew around them using tailors chalk.

Drawing around my pattern blocks onto calico

After cutting out my fabric pattern pieces I dyed each piece individually. I used a paintbrush to paint the dye onto the fabric. I used shades of green, blue and a bit of yellow to create a "spacey"/galaxy/green gas effect.

While the fabric pieces were drying I cut out the lining for the dress. I used a dark green lining as the seams are showing on the outside and this would highlight this.

After pinning the lining to the calico I pinned the pattern pieces together and sewed the seems together. I used the stand to help visulise the finished garment and to keep check on the positioning of seams.
