I've longed for a class with this super star since the days of her excellent TV show. I watched those shows over and over again. So when I met her yesterday it was like seeing an old friend. For me anyway.
And you know how these classes go. Interesting and cheerful classmates surround me. Sewers are the best.
Saturday started with a trunk show. Nothing like it to get your sewing mojo pumped up. Then she measured and fitted us for her Vogue pattern block.
Day 2, I've made a denim toile of narrow leg pants with princess seams. After a couple of Sandra tweaks, I'm very happy. Now I need to transfer the changes to the pattern tissue.
Tonight I cut out a toile for stable knit pants. I get one more day with Sandra so I'm anxious to baste these together. Here's hoping I can finish this workshop with two great pants patterns.
But it doesn't matter much what happens tomorrow. I'm already thoroughly happy and grateful for this opportunity. Sandra like so many sewing teachers is generous and encouraging.
I'll post better pictures and pattern details very soon.
