Modelling on the stand

As some of you may be aware as well as teaching and running Sew2it I also work freelance.

This week I have been pattern cutting for a Pantomine Dame,who before the false boobs has a 50" chest and after false boobs is now 62". It has been quite a challenge as I then have to get the top in a short space to a waist measurement of 47". It also has a crin skirt and to top it all its made out of PVC.

Will post a finished picture.

Childrens waistcoat

This week one of my Thursday evening ladies completed this lovely lined waistcoat for her daughter,she even tried some applique for the flower.Well done Karen.
