The Return to Sewing

Filed under: Sewing — Tags: , , , — soozeinthecity @ 8:35 pm

At the end of 2011 I bought a Groupon for a Beginners Sewing Class at The Sewing Studio in NYC. I took the class and was amazed at how much information was taught in a two hour lesson.

For the last two months I have been attending the Introductory Sewing class and I just finished our last project, a cotton skirt. I love the Kokka fabric I found at Pins & Needles – my eyes would have zeroed in on this fabric if I were shopping in a store.

I am taking the next class (Intro to Sewing II) with the intention to make denim trousers. Pants are the hardest item to make fit well on the female body. I spent almost all two hours of today’s class wearing the pattern pinned to the lower half of my body!!
But more about this project in the coming weeks.
