This was a 'get back to sewing' task for me, which worked. I liked the instructor, who was very patient. Although we didn't get finished, there's lots of dates avaliable to come back and finish off.
More practice at gathering, and more practice at easing sleeves, which I definitely need. My favourite was learning how to make my own bias binding - I can see me using this knowledge much more. I also learned how to sew on bias binding as an edge detail. I used a vintage, second hand, embroidered tablecloth as my fabric, and this has encouraged me to continue experimenting, especially if I can also use my own home made bias binding for creating unique and economical apparel. The instructor was very helpful and hands on. She was encouraging at all times. I look forward to future classes with her.
