So, after making a muslin for the Tova tunic, I decided that it just didn't fit me well. I found that I am in between two of their sizes and didn't want to make the larger one so I ditched it. It was a really good learning process for me (my first garment for me,) and it convinced me that I needed to take a garment sewing class from somebody that could show me the ropes in person. (Thanks for all of your great comments on that post too- very helpful and most appreciated!)
So, a friend found a teacher for us, we picked a pattern and we jumped in.
Instagram and over at Threadbias. I'll be finishing it up next week after I learn how to put in the sleeves and finish all the seams without a serger. If this whole sewing clothing thing goes well, guess what will be on my birthday wish list this year!
Our teacher mentioned doing a class on techniques which I think would be great too. I really just want to learn the right way to do things so I don't have to google every step along the way!
I think after we finish this top, I'd like to make the Washi dress and add sleeves to that. I'd really love to have it finished by Sew South. I've got 5 weeks to go so I better get a move-on!
Any garment patterns you love? I'd love to hear some recommendations!
