Couture Sewing Group
I was invited to attend a meeting of a couture sewing group, which was very interesting. The ladies are in the middle of a challenge to make a vest, using couture techniques. They were fittting muslins. It's fairly typical of me that I was more taken by the architecture of the building where they met (a mid-century modern Episcopal church) than I was by the muslins---I love mid-century modern and don't like vests. I might decide to attend that church based solely on the building, but that may have been an underlying reason to build all those rococco cathedrals! The second picture is of a field trip we made to a design studio where the owner makes her own buttons. Awesome! I brought home quite a stash to add to the ones I bought at Expo and still haven't used. In other news, I bought a new car! But I'll leave that for a future post. I certainly had an eventful day.
