Have you stopped by Craftsy? I recently signed up for an online class for making a couture dress. It is offered at a great price and includes the pattern. I love learning new things and I think there is always more to learn when trying to fit a dress.
Craftsy is great because you can see projects made by other members.
Speaking of inspiration, check out Goodbye Valentino’s blog. Wow!
I really like the color-blocked look and think I may go in that direction. I’ll keep you posted!
