Susan returns to Australia – hopefully we’ve seduced her enough to keep coming back on the regular! It’s always a tough choice to pick one thing to work on… this year I will a softly tailored jacket. Here’s to hoping she’ll come back again in 2019 so I can made a dress!
F9814: Peach Blush Jacket
Susan Khalje ccame to Australia, and I was fortunate enough to do my second Couture Sewing School Class with her. This time, I chose a pair of pants as the focus.
In October 2013 I did a 6 day couture sewing course with Susan Khalje. Quite different to the French Jacket class where we were all working on the same thing – this was BYO project to work on under her tutelage! I had to keep myself in check to not wander around the tables just watching what everyone else was doing and listening to the advice being given.
The hardest thing about joining this class was choosing what to sew! I was torn… what I love sewing most is tailored jackets and blazers, but felt as though having just finished the French Jacket Class, that I would want something different to sew. So I went the more predictable option and took a dress.
I haven’t yet finished that dress… it’s been temporarily put aside whilst I sew my wedding dress. Besides – it’s summer right now and I’m not overly enthused about sewing a wool crepe dress in the heat! Rest assured, i’ll finish it sometime in 2014 :)
