[sewing] Sewing Lessons #1 and #2

This year I’ve decided to take sewing lessons at l’Atelier sur le Fil with Rébécca. I’ll be joining 8 other ladies on their 2nd year, and working on 1st year projects too. Lessons take place every tuesday from 8 to 10 pm.

Here are the fabrics chosen for the class projects : a kind of chambray for the skirt, with darts already pinned. Top right, the fabrics for my bag: black for the outside and pink for the inside

On my first lesson, I came unprepared and didn’t have all the right stuff such as pattern paper and a ruler. It brought bak to my mind memories of school year when you don’t really fit in! Thankfully, I was ready for the 2nd lesson and had everything on hand.

My class stuff

The first project for the 2nd year is a lined tote bag and I will do a 1st year project too: a simple A-line skirt. Other ladies have also started tracing a buttoned blouse pattern and I hope to join them soon. It’s great to be able to meet other sewing enthusiasts, to see different creations from the same pattern and to have some time for myself during the week! yes mister dad works far away and I have to do 80% of the “work” at home and caring for our daughter, so it’s a welcome creative break 🙂
