Teagan Jacobs on Instagram: "When draping on the dress form I often get asked “but how do you get it off the mannequin?”. And the answer is usually- hand sewing. Full disclosure I was never technically taught on how to do this, but this is the technique I use. If I’m working with a sheer fabric and can’t use a pen or pencil (which is what I would typically use) then hand sewing acts as my pencil! Here I’m doing a basting stitch on the seam allowance and the apex of the bust. I then use lots of steam directly on the dress form, which helps hold the pleats in place. Now I can remove it from the dress form and continue working on my garment. What do you think of this technique? Is it something you’ve done before or would like to try? 🏹 #teaganjacobs ✨ Mannequin is gifted from @royaldressform Sewing Patterns, Instagram, Inspiration, Workshop, Sewing Dresses, Dress Making, Dress Form, Sewing Machine Basics, Sheer Fabrics

This time I have again tried the bonding technique, which I had previously tried with imitation leather, now with denim fabric. The designer should do innovative and experimental works with different materials and techniques. The glue I used in this work does not leave any odor or texture when it dries. At the bottom, there is an inner body sewn from natural fabric. Additionally, the interior is lined with lining. Who would you like to see this dress on?"
