Yay! Am really glad that my first Hollyburn skirt workshop was a success. All students went home with a completed skirt and one student even lined hers! We all worked really hard whilst chatting about The Great British Sewing Bee, inhaling cake between sewing marathons. We pushed the time slots of the classes to the hilt, but we got there and then some. Well done, friends!
Isn’t the above blue skirt gorgeous? I’m tempted to buy some of this fabric myself. The print is purposefully and very slightly off grain, which forces a person to Embrace The Randomness. No print matching here! (Ask my student and I how we know that the print is slightly off grain…)
The Village Haberdashery and I will soon be announcing dates for a second workshop, so watch this space and start dreaming about fabric.
In other news, it’s time to pull a name out of the virtual hat for the winner of the Abbey Coat giveaway. It’s Lori! I’ll be in touch for a postal address, lovely.
That’s it from me, guys. The sun is calling and Ella is impatient for her morning stroll aka excuse to bark at anything with a heartbeat. Small children on tricycles, be on your guard…
