Summer Sewing Sweetness

During one of my summer sewing workshops, these 2 middle school girls constructed their own maxi dresses from tank tops and favorite fabric. When finished, there was an immediate impromptu fashion photo shoot!

Fabric Field Trip!

Discount Fabric Outlet in the Mission treated us right. The girls chose several cottons and some light knits with plans for bags and maxi dresses! With 5 different pieces for each girl plus thread, zippers and notions, they came in under their combined $80 budget!

I love teaching girls who are as excited as I am about fabric. xxoo Yabette
