Here's a picture of Fall Dress #3 - love it! I worked on altering the pattern back in September, but choked in pattern grading confidence so I laid it aside. I picked it back up last week because I really do love this dress that makes my thoughts wonder back to high school. Is that such a bad thing?, or am I too old to be thinking about fashion from that era? I have such great high school memories, as I am sure many of you do. Mine was the era of the "Mini Skirt", so you know I wanted to make theses dresses muchhhhh shorter, but didn't dare (lol). After all I am a GrandMa four times over.

The sewing cave is a mess!, the result of a 9 hour (10:30a.m. to 7:30p.m.) beginning sewing class with two people. Now, they didn't cause all this disarray, but we did have SOME fun! We must have laughed all day long. I should have taken pictures while they were here but didn't even think about it at the time. In the process we reviewed reading the back of the pattern envelope, choosing sizes, determining fabric yardage, selecting fabrics, and lots of sewing terminology in the process. One person finished a cardigan, and the other a muslin for a pair of pants - they were very happy with the results. We plan on getting together for another session before Thanksgiving.
After fixing a quick bite to eat, I was in bed by 8:30, I was a little tired (lol). Teaching is so rewarding, especially when you're teaching something that YOU LOVE...
