Skip the Tailor class last weekend at Gather Here. Virginia is a gifted seamstress and does a wonderful job at explaining how to alter garments. I was a bit worried about chopping up my new Lilly Pulitzer maxi skirt with it's fancy hem but at 5' 2" that was the only way I was ever going to get to wear it. Virginia walked me through removing the facing, trimming the skirt to match the existing curve, and reattaching the facing plus hemming the lining. Left to my own devices I definitely would not have done as professional looking a job of it. She also helped me take in the straps off another dress so the top fits correctly. I've got another skirt lined up to go back next month, it'll be such a treat to finally get to wear these fabulous clothes:-)
Refashion, Repurpose, Redo...
Oh, Fransson!'s Sewing Circle Tote but it's not going to be ready in time for this year's BostonMQG retreat. I'm packed up and ready to go so hopefully the weather will cooperate and I'll be sewing up a storm this weekend:-)
