Hello,

I have been draping and tweaking this for weeks.  It is the skirt overlay for a satin dress.

My question is; having got to this stage how do I remove it from the dressform without it all falling apart.  I think i need to tack it all to a piece of gross grain ribon perhaps?

If the skirt is all hanging from the waist it will need grosgrain ribbon inside or a waistband to hold it together in wear.  I think I would securely tack ribbon to the outside to get it off the dress form.

It looks lovely - is it for a special Christmas event?

That looks lovely GG. I agree with BrendaP.  I assume you have an opening planned somewhere?? :)

Delicious!  No clue [I don't do draping] but the ribbon suggestion sounds the way to go
