Draping Fluid

This is a Japanese draping technic I have learned.

For the dress and the lining I have used micro-satin which is softly draping.

I have made the basic pattern for the top, but the skirt is based on a BurdaStyle pattern which I like very much. My Birthday Dress was sewn of the same pattern.

My lovely friend, Inger Hanne was my model at a local mannequin show at Stord Quiltelag.

 I start withe a basic body and are drawing the lines for the pattern.
 Then I make the parts with seam allowance which I use to make the draping on.
The draping parts are sewn together.
I'm sewing the lining to the front and back part.

I'm leaving the back part without draping.
The skirt for the dress is based on 
a BurdaStyle pattern #130 12/2013.
