I love the fancy patterned coutil <3 I have loads of it ready for a project at some point in the future. This is beautiful - great job :D

Wonderful! The use of this coutil combined with amazing lace decoration and those fun suspenders really looks breathtaking!
Interpretation of the pattern is really good. On the paper the pattern doesn't look this great. You made me want to try this pattern for myself.

I'm super interested in doing something like this, for the Fortuny knockoffs I'm experimenting with and/or for what I'm currently considering for the 2020 contest... As a plus size person, my body is not really what Fortuny designed for, so I think it will be important for me to use a foundation like this. Thanks for this article! I don't have the software to try to scale it up that way, so there will be some experimenting in my future!
