How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Yesterday and today, I had the pleasure of taking a fitting workshop with Linda Lee. As you might know (since I’ve never mentioned it before), I am not much of a garment sewer. Truth be told, my last run in with garment sewing was a skirt I made in junior high. Linda is seamstress extraordinaire of
The Sewing Workshop.
Linda is also a genius!! She helped me (okay, she did it while I observed…) to alter the Mixit Top to fit perfectly. I am all kinds of not the exact pattern size. I made a muslin with my special pattern and just needed a few tweaks. And by muslin, I mean I used a piece of Amy Butler Charm off the sale rack…my machine would be offended to sew muslin.
Guess what fabric I chose for my top?!? TULA PINK The Birds & the Bees!! I am so excited that I can barely stand it! I am going to wear Tula!
Here is Linda showing me how to align and ease my shoulder seams. I might be new to garment sewing, but I certainly know how to ease:)

I still have to put in sleeves, so you’ll have to wait to see the awesomeness that is my new shirt! Also, stay tuned for shirt number two…can I just say MELODY MILLER typewriters!?
Very excited about my new adventures in garment sewing; I’ll keep y’all posted!
