a couple of years ago, my good friend asked me to take a sewing class with her. being on the short and stout side, i’m always needing to hem and alter my clothes. so, i said “sign me up!”
my first sewing project – an a line skirt with the class machine.
we took our classes at Stonemountain and Daughter Fabrics in berkeley. this shop has the best fabric selection i have seen in this area of the country. it is no MOOD©, but it will do for a budding designer like me. 🙂 the people who work there are pretty helpful and the instructors are great. within weeks, i was making all of my own clothes!
last week on project runway©, Heidi Klum commented that one of the designs looked like a McCall’s© sew it yourself at home projects. i’m still at that point, but as i get more used to my machine and the techniques, i hope to branch out soon!
but for now, it’s more clothes for me and gifts for friends!
