One of my sewing students chose the most fantastic, fine light weight lawn cotton to sew a tunic.
I took some photos in her sewing room durning our class as we cut out and measured , pinned, sewed, serged, eased and pressed our way through the quest for the "perfect tunic"in design and fit.
I love the way she organized her ribbon on an unused spool rack. They are also on display . You can enjoy the colors . My ribbons are all stuffed in boxes, but what a delight to see the joyful colors daily!
Oh if only I was this organized.
FINISHED and what a fantastic look! I LOVE THE two pleats in the front and one in the back. This tunic is flattering AND comfortable
I see more variations of this tunic emerging sewn in different weight fabrics for fall and winter. It looks so great!
I love when members from RAVELRY come to the studio for a visit. This week I had ' Padrewayne '(Wayne) and Harry visiting, and 'artique'(Linda).
" how cool to have the bobbin winder built in". He was away from his loom for a week while on vacation and was having weaving withdrawal while they visited Santa Cruz. Even sitting for a short while at the loom for a fiber 'check in' helped. What was on there agenda next? Shakespeare Santa Cruz in the glen on the UCSC campus was scheduled for there evening.
This is molly she works in a local health food store. I had to take a photo of her repurposed wool sweater. She cut it down, and on the sleeves with the excess, she snipped fringes on them. Very cool. She says she has a skirt with fringes and she needed something to go with her" cow girl skirt so I made this top." Brilliant Molly!
I got to meet Caryl in the studio yesterday.
She tried out a saori sxloom and the saori warping frame. Awarping frame left with her and some new lovely Saori yarn 10 cone sets.
(Here are a few photos of the differnt Saori special edition cone sets)
