    It's a good idea! Lovely the decoration of the dress, I think would be nice also for a curtain. Good luck!

    I made my daughter's wedding dress and I made a first one out of muslin before cutting the satin. But gasa is gauze so it might be a type of gauze fabric which would be more sheer than muslin.

    I would like to see your daughter's wedding dress. Muslin in Spanish will be muselina. And gasilla is another material.
    Gasa is not gasilla. Even if it seems to be the same, it's another material.
    My grandmother was a taylor. I don't know if gasilla is the right word. I never used with other people. In the shop they knew the word, but I'm affraid that is very local. I don't know the word in Spanish,and even worst in English

    Yes, you're right. It's hard for me to explain it in Spanish, even more in English.

    When you design a hand made dress (for taylors and Haute Couture), you have to make a first dress with a material called "gasilla" (sorry I don't know the name in other languages), from this piece, you can have de final patterns for the dress.

    The base of the dress to glue the leaves is "gasilla". In a hand made wedding dress, this could be the first one, that won't be used for the final one.

    What material are the leaves glued to? You should include that in the step description. If you used some kind of fabric you have to state it so that you can be considered for the best use of fabric judges' prize :)

    Very clever, but you need a base dress to glue the "leaves" onto...
