Tuesday’s Triumph’s and Trials

All sewing is a great adventure-a garment that you will wear is merely a lucky byproduct of that adventure 🙂

With that in mind, here are some November sewing adventures-there’s still more to come from Thursday’s (11/14) meetings- 10:30 am at SR Harris, Burnsville 6:30 pm at First Sewing, Bloomington

This was the triumph-Wiksten Harem pants-or is the smile because she’s going to be a grandma??
And this was her trial-maybe no interfacing in the neck?
Japanese apron and Light and Shadows/Cutting Line Designs in wool
Very much Honorable Mention for her unmentionables
Butterick 6492 and 6634
Love the print on print!
Cutting Line blouse and Japanese scarf
She couldn’t go to class with just any old pincushion 🙂

Bare Legs? Bare Shoulders? Today in Burnsville


That’s right-final Fashion Sewing Club for April at SR Harris in Burnsville. Today, Thursday at 10:30 am.
Like most normal people expecting spring weather, we sewed for spring! Who knew we’d be cancelling a meeting on Saturday because of a super snowstorm? But the weather man said sixty next week so we keep hoping.
We also hope you can join us this morning if you haven’t yet this month. Bring your spring dream clothes to show and we’ll have ours.
