Creative Draping-Strapless Taffeta Dress
Once you have learned our draping basics, you are ready to experiment. KatiLin Stone, an emerging New York-based designer, will demonstrate how to manipulate silk taffeta over a strapless dress foundation, as part of our Creative Draping series. Draping over a dress foundation is the best way for you to secure your creative drape to the foundation, using a series of hand stitches. You will find that the possibilities are endless, using this technique.
