Creative Draping- Zero Waste Dress

Creative Draping- Zero Waste Dress

Creative draping involves experimentation. In this lesson, we are featuring one of our new emerging designers, Nicole Bisono, who will use silk satin organza to drape a zero waste dress onto a dress foundation. You will watch as she manipulates the fabric to create a unique one-off design and then she will secure the drape to the foundation with a series of hand stitches.
