Teaching In New Orleans

I will be teaching in New Orleans on September 21 and 22 for the GNO  SAGA guild.   
Our project is the Toddler Summer Dress.

We will be learning and perfecting two of my favorite embroidery stitches, Featherstitching and Bullion  Rosebuds.

And stitching Lace to Entredeux and learning a neat finish to the skirt/bodice seam.

The lovely fabric is called Dress Weight Batiste.  It is a Swiss Batiste that is just slightly more opaque making it nice for a dress.  Presses up very crisply!

We will add Tucks to the hem and the bodice and Swiss Edging at the hem.  This class has some pretty embellishments but it is really a good class to brush up on your construction techniques.

We are using the pattern Toddler Summer Dresses.

This is my White Wednesday post for this week.  Join me..

When I saw the pictures, I was immediately struck by the close-up of the pintucks and embroidery. I thought, look how beautifully that fabric irons up, so crisp, sets of the detail so well. And then, I read your comment about fabric ironing up well. I thought I should let you know how effectively your picture made your point!
