My Bags are Packed for Norfolk/T-Yoke Gown Class

Old  Fashioned Baby T-Yoke Gown, Dress and Christening Gown Pattern.
 I love the class I am teaching for the Seaside Smockers.  It is the "T-Yoke Baby Gown" class. A two day class (one thing I love about it!).  This class has some very useful techniques that look difficult but are not.  You just have to know how to do them! As my students follow along in class, stitching, they are amazed at what they can do.   I love the happy look on someones face when they are pleased with their accomplishments.  That's the best part of teaching.  See Martha's finished gown at Southern Matriarch.

Getting ready to teach the T-Yoke Gown class to the Seaside Smockers.
I have started this gown in Green Fairy fabric so I can show the steps as we progress in class.
Little pink Bullions Roses on the green sleeve.
  I am also making a dress from the same pattern with the Green Fairy fabric (are you thinking I love this lovely green?) but I am going to eliminate the ruffle on the dress to change it up a bit.
One of the neatest things about going to teach this class for the Seaside Smockers is that one of their members is the reason this pattern exists.  Jamie has shared many of her wonderful garments with me, allowing me to copy and be inspired by them.  More on Jamie and the history of the T-Yoke Gown another time!

Love that gown. I just need to put lace on hem and a tad more embroidery.
