I finally took photos of the couture skirt I made for Apparel Construction II. I know many people do not like hand sewing because it takes forever, but I love it. Maybe because I can take my sewing anywhere and call me crazy, but I think hand sewing is rather therapeutic! LOL. I wished I had more time to include even more couture techniques, but I was lucky enough to finish this. The initial project I wanted to do was to make a multi-layered ballgown I designed :P... but I just didn't have the time with the amount of hours I was working.
You can read and see more photos of the skirt here:
If you are interested in learning more about couture techniques, these were a couple of books I used and liked:
