Tonight I'm off out for night 2 of my 10 week dressmaking class.. I can't wait !
Last week we learned how to
thread the sewing machine (always handy to know!)
and how to sew a straight line (check!),
make a buttonhole with the buttonhole function on the machine (check!).
My machine at home has no such magical function, :( so I gave it a go WITHOUT using the special buttonhole twiddly bits...... Um ! that ones going to take a bit of practice!)
Anyway , a new week and some new challenges!
We are going to be cutting out our patterns tonight.
We were sent off to pick a (simple) pattern and some fabric.
Never one to do things by half, I've picked two !!!
One simple skirt -
|Here's the skirt - New Look pattern no 6035 |
& no matter what it turns out like No! My legs wont end up looking that good !
|The fabric for the skirt is man-made & a little bit slippery a bit more challenging than the cottons I usually sew with.|
And one (sort of) simple dress -
|Simplicity Pattern 1808 - the fabric is a lovely geometric pattern in autumn shades (&Yup! same deal again with the legs!)|
|This dress pulls on over your head so it needs to be made from jersey fabric |
- this will be a challenge to work with no doubt!
Thanks for visiting & please do come back soon !
