I'm still going to my sewing class each Friday. Holly holds classes on various days/evenings through the week, I think the maximum number of people she can accommodate in each class is ten, the Friday morning one I attend is only small, usually just the six of us, It's just about right. We have got to know each other and there is no waiting to use the cutting table, irons or overlocker. Everyone works on their own chosen pattern and at their own pace, a few of the ladies have been going longer than me but, like me they had limited dressmaking know-how to begin with and with Holly's help and encouragement are now making beautiful clothes. Holly is lovely and is always on hand to assist in anyway needed, she has been sewing for years so has extensive knowledge.
I'm very slow, but I'm told that's good, taking your time and getting it right is the best way. I'm not always patient when learning new things but I'm learning not rush the process, afterall, I want something that's wearable.
This is my second me-made dress, Hinterland Dress by Sew Liberated. I've seen it made by several people I follow on Youtube and it seems a versatile pattern. The fabric I chose was a cotton by Rose & Hubble
