Measure twice and cut once!-Day 2 of Couture Sewing School

We refined and tweaked our toiles to perfection with the guidance of Susan Khalje.  She is truly amazing in detecting the nuances for perfect fit.

One the fit was refined, the toile is taken apart.  The toile is now our pattern.


Wide seam allowances are used in couture sewing.




Then the stitching line is thread traced.


Underlining is applied with a hand basting stitch.
We are having a blast!
