Playing with ideas is the fun part of a project, all the possibilities… With just over a week a decision had to be made. I have decided to made a corset style top and then hopefully this will lead me to the best option for the skirt. At this stage I plan to use silk organza from Silk Studio Cambodia for this. I am thinking of using some of the flower motifs on the skirt, so I am saving these sections. I have placed all the corset pattern pieces on the fabric, matching up the batik design, making sure I have enough for each panel. My trusty studio assistant was not much help here.The scariest moment was cutting into the fabric, fully aware this is all I have, no going down to Textile Traders if I run out or make a mistake. All the pieces were cut out correctly, sewn together, ironed, placed on the model…can you see the problem?Two unfortunately placed flower motifs!
