My Christmas Gifts: Sewing classes!

So for this year’s Christmas gifts I got sewing classes! Simon and I take sewing classes at Club Tissus in Lavel with Dorothée Barnes. We have taken sewing classes with her and made our winter jackets, snow pants (I have not finished them shhhh!), shirts, sweaters, dresses, swim suits, etc… We love her classes and enjoy our date night together. 

The first course I am taking alone. Simon would like to come with me, but the other ladies may be uncomfortable with a man there. The course is Soutien-Gorge 1, Bras. But Simon will be helping me at home. He can’t wait for the measurement class! I am tired of purchasing bras that don’t fit well. And they are not cheap. So why pay for something that annoys me, that fits poorly and is not what I want? Time to make them myself.

The course comes with a pattern. I assume we will be hacking it to bits, making it work for us. Yeah!

The second course is Lingerie Fine. We will be using the pattern Jalie 3242, I already have this pattern in my stash and I can’t wait to use it. We will make undergarments for the whole family. Simon is taking this class with me. 

Jalie patterns are great! The paper is really thick so they last. And they all include sizes from 2 to adult. I can't wait for this class. 

I hope you all enjoyed your Holidays and got some sewing time in. I passed too much spare time on the XBox for sewing. Maybe next weekend!
