I am new to this site, but think it’s a great idea to exchange ideas etc.
I am a professional tailor who’s taking on a new project: making simple wedding dresses in fine silk, all with semi-long trains! I have never worked with fine silk, nor anything cut on the bias, so I desperately need some advice!
What do I do if my fabric isn’t wide enough to fit the entire length of the pattern?
And would you sow darts at the waist, or leave that as extra width?
And what is the best way to finish the hemline?
And on a completely different subject: Does anyone know where I can buy large rolls of pattern paper??
Thanks in advance!
