Hi Everyone!September is National Sewing Month "The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”
Sew what am I doing? Sewing! w/the rest of the girls in September's Beginner & Intermediate Sewing Classes :) In Intermediate Sewing, each of the students are making projects of their choice, which includes Fitted Jeans, Classic Tailored Pant & a Classic Perfect Fit Shirt along w/myself taking the Classic Perfect Shirt and making it into a Button Down Dress. The students are going to be learning the details of a Pattern & according to their chosen projects: Placket & the Sleeve Cuff + Placket, Shirt Collar & Collar Band Construction, Buttonholes, Darts, Princess Seams, Jean Assembly & much more! These are all from Commercial McCall's Patterns. And just a tip, the Commercial Pattern Sizes are not the same sizes you wear in Ready to Wear. You may be a size 6 in Ready to Wear Garments in the stores, yet a size 10 on any one of the Commercial Patterns. So, know what your Body Measurements are before you go shopping for a Pattern; take your Bust, Waist & Hip Measurements, because you may be surprised the size you are on Paper :). But after you make it, you can call it any size you want ;)
Happy Sewing Everyone!
And don't forget, the Art of Beginner's Sewing @ Soul Collection's is Extended Time & Intensive Challenges starting November for the Fall/Winter Season. Sew start off your Holiday making someone Novelty Gifts!
