I hope you are all happy and well! Today I bring news on my bridalwear course I am taking art the London College of fashion.
I am absolutely loving the course, it is absolutely brilliant- I have learnt so much from the lovely tutor- Christina Sesay, who has her own bespoke bridal business (like what I hope to have one day :)
I have not quite finished my bodice yet (I will be done by friday) but here is what I have so far on the stand. It is boned, fully lined and lo has an internal corset to pull the bride in that extra bit more if she wishes. The design is all mine and it was lovely to see something I had imagined coming to life in front of me through all the new skills and techniques I had learned:
As well as bodices, we have also been working on some skirts, just as toiles. I will have a fishtail style one to show you all soon, but for now here is the draped front skirt with integral train:
This one is so interesting. I am enjoying working on skirts as these are something I have experimented less with compared to bodices and tops.
I better go now though as I have to go there now for day 3 of week 2! :-)
Speak to you all again soon,
