The countdown is on. 4 more classes. 3 if you figure the last class is to hand in the finished garment. I have found the twice a week schedule a bit intense. The students just don't have time to sew between Monday and Wednesday. I look forward to the fall once a week schedule. That pace will seem like heaven!
On the home sewing front, same dress, different flavour. It is a cotton, lined with a cotton voile that I had in the stash. This baby is properly finished, everything neat and tidy the way I like it. The belt is piped in some commercial bias tape. This version came together easy but putting on all that bias took ages. I am done with this pattern for now. I though I had a black version in me but I don't.
I just got my serger back and she is tuned up. I used the coverstitch to hem a pair of PJs. Meh, it's ok but frankly I feel more in control with a twin needle. I finally finished the seams of mom's Von Trapp skirt and whipped it up for a fabric fitting.
A quick 2 hours resulted in a removable seat cover for the lounger at the cottage. Got up to the cottage and didn't need it. Forgot I bought a new cushion last year. Oh well, I'll use it eventually.
