Sewing and Weaving

26 Feb

I am so excited about what has been going on in the sewing studio lately!!  We have had many finishes:

6th grader blouse front.

6th grader blouse back.

These shirts are quite complicated.  They are not “kid” patterns, they are real patterns.  The front of the bodice is totally lined and has interfacing in it.  There are pleats – both front and back and it is sewn on knit fabric.  Job Well Done!

These blouses are coming out so lovely.  Lots of hard work and lots of time go into these.  Great work!

This bag posed it’s own set of difficulties for this student.  She chose some gorgeous fabric, but it is a very fluffy fleece and is very hard to sew on.  But she persevered and it turned out beautifully!
