My student putting in a hand pick stitch to keep the lining from rolling out. She has had 20 lessons so far.
This is her gold lining for the dark gray wool bolero.
I've been making this dress on the right. I am doing it Couture style just to practice the skills needed. I'm using a royal blue shantung taffeta and it's underlined with silk organza and will be lined with satin. A lot of hand work goes into this layer before I even get the lining in.
Below is the lining fabric it's a champagne color.
I have just been painting a wall in my craft room a 'Fairytale Pink'.
By the way my Rowena iron just quit on me last week and I ordered a new space age iron! I'm waiting on its arrival from amazon.com. Let you know how I like it later.
