Friends, I’m so excited to be teaching another class at my favorite fabric store/sewing studio! This time, we’re focusing on baby outfits, and I’m certain that everyone needs to make an adorable pinafore and pair of bloomers at some point. Right? I think these would make fabulous holiday gifts as well as gifts for expectant parents any time of the year.
I think what’s most thrilling for me is that these are adapted from Japanese patterns but modified heavily by me, so they are, in essence, my own patterns. I worked and re-worked the patterns to really simplify them, but the class will include tips and tricks on working with Japanese sewing books as well. The pinafore top can be adjusted to fit sizes approximately 6 months to 18 months (if the 18-month-old is quite slim), and is fully lined.
It’s another all-day workshop on December 8th, so I’ll be doing quite a bit to prepare for the class. I was so very lucky with my first class (awesome people! super fun!) and it seemed like an auspicious beginning. Holiday times are tricky though, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that the class will actually happen…
