Once a sketch is selected, the
client is measured and work begins.
The gowns are built from the inside out beginning
with a boned foundation and crinoline.
A muslin gown that goes over the foundation
is stitched. The muslin gown serves as a rough
draft for the first fitting. The muslin
presents the opportunity to perfect the fit
and make design changes and modifications
on the client prior to cutting into the real
fabrics. Once the muslin fitting is
complete the actual gown is made and we have
a final fitting. The final fitting includes
the veil and bustling.
