Thank you for the overwhelming response to my last dress! I had no idea it would be so popular. You all are too kind. I’ll have to reconsider making another for winter!
As you know, I don’t really love giving sewing lessons. At least, I thought I didn’t. Turns out when your student is enthusiastic and LISTENS to you, it’s a total pleasure. I think if I ever really give lessons, I’ll make people apply, LOL. I finished my third sewing lesson today with Elizabeth. We sewed the crotch curve to the November 2009 pajama bottoms. She made the casing and hemmed the pants.
I was asked if I was going to charge for lessons (like many of you. I’m asked all the time for lessons). Quite frankly, I owe her. You see, we went to China two weeks after my fairly bad breakup. So, unfortunately she got to travel with me when I was terribly sad, confused and prone to tears in the middle of touring the Forbidden City. She was a good listener and never told me to just be quiet and eat my lo mein. Trust. I owe her more than a few sewing lessons.
She was SO EXCITED to finish them. I kept hugging her because I was so proud her her. And, I couldn’t believe how nicely they fit! Not too big at all. I’ve made some pajama bottoms that are voluminous!
She loved them so much she wore them home 🙂 I also unloaded my Sew Stylish magazines on her.
Last night, a year to the day of my last pair I finished my third pair of the No. 131 pants from the 9-2007 Burda. I’ll post photos of them on later this week (they are black in real life).
