Sew Fun & Sew Educational

Yes I know, I am sew corny, but I can’t help it.  And I can just hear my mom saying “It’s sew much fun!”

Last night I went to my second sewing class at a super cool place in Ballard called Drygoods Design and it was incredibly fun. This was the second and last class, and after cutting and ironing and sewing for six hours, each student went home with an adorable school house tunic, which I have to say, might be my new thing to wear every day of my life.  It’s like a stylishly covert moo-moo.  Check out the pattern:

There were six of us in the class – all of us very different shapes, sizes, ages, and fabric choices, and while we were all working from the same pattern, we each created something so unique – something just right for us. We oo’ed and ah’d over each other’s fabrics and how the final products turned out.  We had a fabulous instructor, but also helped each other along the way, saying things like, “Don’t worry, that sleeve will turn out great!”  Group sewing is where it’s at!  Check out my garment:

Our instructor took that shot just before going home, and while it’s not very glamorous, you get the picture.  Oh, and I should add that I had the most adorable fabric in the class.  Check out this up close shot:

I can definitely see more sewing in my future…
