I have fallen in love with the website Craftsy. It features great online classes, workshops, patterns, projects and a blog. I am currently enrolled in "The Couture Dress" online class taught by Susan Khalje. I will use New Look 6023, View B for my first couture dress project. The fabric I have selected for this project is a seafoam green linen I brought last year from Hancock Fabric.
I have ordered silk organza to underline my dress. Today I will embark on the step to cut out and mark the muslin of the dress. I am very excited about this project.
I also enrolled in a free online class from Crafsty called "Sewing Machine Feet A to Z" taught by Steffani Lincecum. I plan to watch this class tomorrow evening. This evening I will be watching the Forty-Niners win the Super Bowl! (YEAH)
This morning I found Threads was having a great sale on E-books. I promptly downloaded "The Easy Guide to Sewing Linings" by Connie Long. I always question my knowledge of lining fabric selection and sewing techniques. I also downloaded "Linen and Cotton" by Susan Khalje. There is no doubt that linen and cotton are my favorite fabrics to sew with and I want to learn as much as I can about these fabrics as I embark on my couture dresses!
Happy crafting everyone!
