On Tuesday, I started another sewing class called "Sew Much More". In this class we are building on what we learned in the previous course and further developing our skills in pattern-altering, layout, more advanced techniques such a s darts, zippers, facings, seam finishes and hems.
I chose the McCall's pattern #5672 that has this adorable dress for the Spring and Summer (dress is on the far right in photo).
E helped me pick out the pattern because he loves dresses on me (he is so sweet), he also helped with the fabric and the buttons. We always have such a good time together when we go shopping for my projects. I love how he takes such an interest in what I love doing. I love supporting his many hobbies too. He is an amazing musician, artist, painter, woodcarver/furniture maker and an excellent handyman.
I will be posting a tutorial of how I made this dress with photos once I complete it. I pinned the pattern onto the fabric and just completed cutting it out.
Tomorrow, I am taking an additional sewing class called "Sewing Like a Pro" where we choose our own skill level and pace and try a more individual approach to design. We will learn to express ourselves creatively while becoming more efficient in advanced sewing skills and techiques. I will continue working on the pattern I am working on now and if I complete it before the classes are over I will be starting another pattern.
