Doing the "toile"


A toile is a version of a garment made by a fashion designer or dressmaker to test a pattern. They are usually made in cheap material, as multiple toiles may be made in the process of perfecting a design. Toiles may be called "muslins" in the United States.

Tracing the basic bodice block.

Our teacher, Rowena showing us how to drape it on the dummy.

I'm finished with the pattern, checking if it fits the dummy.

Cutting the fabrics.

Done putting the seam allowance! Ready for sewing ;-)

Finished ;-)

This is just the "base" of my design. I still have plenty of works to do! haha..
