First Dress Toile (Part 2)

I then progressed to making a petal by sketching a shape on paper and using this initial pattern, and sewing a channel with wire threading through to see whether my idea would work. The wire proved to be too thick and heavy which meant it was harder to mould to shape the of the petal and was to heavy to lift the petal to stick out from the waist.
I also experimented with using an organza material for the insert but I decided I didn't like the finish - although it was slowly starting to look like my design.
