I promise this will be my last post on Skirting Couture! Here are a few blurry snapshots from the weekend workshop.
All of us worked at our own pace, and on our choice of 3 different skirt patterns. I was lucky to get the room with an extravagant amount of table-space per seamstress. Aaaaah, the luxury! Look at all those pretty skirts in process.
I shared my table with Timshel. Couldn’t believe all we had in common! She made her skirt in the gorgeous Azalea Small Gathering from Good Folks.
Isn’t it lovely? Timshel was making one of the harder skirt styles, which required much more cutting. It’s going to be beautiful.
Oh, and look what I found in Timshel’s photostream! See, it’s Anna’s zipper coil drawing. Fabulous, right (wink, wink)? It was very helpful in understanding the invisible zipper.
But for all the learning and sewing, there was an equal share of socializing. A room full of ladies sharing this passion. New friends and new blogs. I’m sure that was half the fun!
And shopping. At the last minute, when our class time was truly over but no one wanted to leave, the ladies hovered around the table full of Anna Maria Horner goodness and bought up fabrics like they were going out of style (and many are going out of print, after all).
The Skirting Couture weekend workshop was an amazing treat that could only have been improved by you all being there too. I wish you were! Next time….
