A test garment.
When making a garment that you haven’t made before, it is a really good idea to produce a toile.
A toile is an early version of a finished garment made up in cheaper plain fabric so that the design can be tested and perfected. Multiple toiles can be made in the process of perfecting a design.
The Dress with POCKETS! These lovely Sigma dresses were made in our May 18 workshop with Jenni. A beautiful floral theme was in play.
Nice work ladies.
The best thing about learning to make your own clothes – is putting pockets in everything you make!
