My duck tape manikin has worked out great. The only hit was the top of the mic stand is bendable. I asked my husband to make a new stand. He just pulled the torso of the stand, adjusted the height and removed the bendable part. Who knew? Now it is just right. Well, I really should tape up the lower arms to hid the hideous T- shirt from a very old dye mishap.
I thought the dress looked a little plain after adding a zipper so I put an insert of a batik in the front, then i thought about a belt. Not to sure, what do you think?
I had a second idea, I would use the batik for the godets that have not yet been added. I barely had enough fabric to make all seven and then accidentally cut a chunk from both ends of the front panel. Thank goodness for 5/8″ seems. It worked.
Will have to finish another day, am out of interfacing. Will line the bodice, add cap sleeves and finish all the edges. Does it still need a belt or sash?
