Although slightly on the late side - July's garment was started and finished one Saturday in July. My sewing machine and I trekked down to London for a sewing class with Chinello from the second series of the Great British Sewing Bee.
The class was a lesson in free hand cutting to make a Maxi Dress (I booked through Kazoova - there may be more classes in the future). Chinello was a fab teacher and after making lots notes and taking various measurements we could start folding and cutting. It was a new experience not to have a paper pattern and to seemingly just cut into the fabric - but it all worked and by the end of the workshop I did have a lovely maxi dress to take home. Perfect for the hot sunny weather.
Whilst in Birmingham last week I picked up some fabric to make a second dress - so fingers crossed I can decipher all my notes and diagrams!
