Learning to sew: I built this. With help, of course. September 21, 2012 00:35 3 Comments
I've been taking a sewing class for four weeks at a fabric store (independently owned, natch) a few blocks from our ever so humble abode. It's a small class (two students, so there's plenty of time for personal attention) at Nob Hill Fabrics, taught by Leslie, sewing teacher extraordinaire. I love the class.
We are using Butterick 5687, but adding welt pockets and bound buttonholes. That's my very own welt pocket shown above! I am so excited. Leslie showed us how to do it, and then painstakingly held my hand while I did my own. (There was some ripping involved. Yes indeed.) I am so eager to finish the jacket. Perhaps in two weeks? Maybe even next week? Mmmmm...
I'm so pleased. What do you think? All lavish compliments accepted. And, sigh, criticism as well.

What’s to criticize? It’s fabulous!
