I recently taught this class to a ASG Neighborhood Group. I think, in sewing, we get so caught up in doing it fast- quick and easy-we forget the tried and true methods of making a garment to last for years. We invest our time in sewing a garment, I think we should appreciate and enjoy each step. I guess that’s why I like using these stitches in a garment rather than a quick method. If you read Claire B. Shaeffer’s book, Couture Sewing Techniques, she outlines these stitches. I know there are other sewing books that show a description of these stitches, too, but I almost always refer back to Couture Sewing. I am working working on a tailored jacket. Vogue Pattern V8333. My plan is to have it done by the New Year. I will post the process of tailoring this jacket as soon as I am finished. Meanwhile, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday- regardless of what holiday you celebrate – I hope you and your family and friends enjoy the holiday season!
