Sewing Idols

   The internet has been a wonderful addition to my sewing skills.  Patterns, fabric, notions are all available online from the comfort of your own home. For example,  I just received the spiral steel boning I need for Gertie's class  in my mailbox.  But the most wonderful gift of the internet, for me, is the availability of  seamstresses from all over the world that so generously offer their skills, complete with techniques and pictures.  All of this for free, for inspiration, for education, for the love of a shared skill.  I have dozens of "favorites" in my sewing folder, but today I want to focus on Tany, who is famous in the blogging world for her fabulous skills not only in sewing but in fashion.
   I've been attempting to make a sheath dress using the SureFit designs and have blogged about it here.
Meanwhile, this is Tany's latest creation:
 And she makes it sound so easy.....
