But Nana and Aunt Dell are gone and my mom doesn't sew any more so I sought out some classes to help me resolve a couple of issues that I had. The intro class and the patterns classes did just that. If you are in the Atlanta area and want to improve your skills you should check out the classes at Whipstitch, they are great. In the interest of full disclosure I loved the place so much that I now own part of Whipstitch but Deborah is the founder, owns the majority and runs the shop.

|First time I made this shirt June 2009.|
The first time I made this shirt I had to re-do the collar 4 times. I just was not getting the concept. It was just weird. But I finally got it and now I make things with collars all the time. I have a new 3/4 sleeve shirt cut right now and waiting to be put together. I will plan to do a collar construction tutorial for anyone interested.
I am still slugging through my awful to-do list, but crossing things off as I go. I have managed to get a little bit of sewing in. I am making a skirt from one of the Platinum Seamstress Challenge fabrics.
You may recall that the fabric is straight from Japan and was only about 16.5 inches wide. But I had 4 meters of it. So I chopped it into panels and am making a skirt.
This is a fuzzy pic of the inside construction. More details soon on how I managed to do it without a pattern. One of my goals is to make things more often with patterns of my own design so I am working on that.
Hope you have a productive day! I am planning to myself.
Peace Out - C
