Seattle BurdaStyle Club held an all day sewing retreat. One of our members kindly volunteered her mom's home for the event, and eight of us got together for nearly 12 hours of sewing, in addition to plenty of chatting, and snacking too.
Burda 10-2009-109, which really piqued my interest! Diana and Cheri both worked on woven shirts, and Stephanie mastered the blind hem on her new machine. Plus we had a special 8-year old guest who sewed up her first garment ever, a pair of leggings from Ottobre. They turned out fantastic, that young thing has a bright sewing future ahead of her.
I eased into the day with a pair of easy yoga pants, a BWOF pattern I've made before, and then I finished the jacket with the Carolina Herrera fabric I mentioned in my last post. Pics and reviews to come as soon as I get them photographed.
All in all it was a fabulous day and we all want to do it again, soon!
