Today I sewed together this dress toile. A toile is basically a mock up of your design, usually in calico or similar, cheaper fabric than the one your garment will be made with.
It’s done to check that everything is correct and helps you to tweak/perfect your design.
Mine was good, it wasn’t a disaster at all. I just need to fix up the length of some godet’s, for some reason they weren’t the same length as the rest of the dress and also sew them on using a different technique and also decide what my neck line will be like.
It’s so exciting watching your designs coming to life.
