|I'm putting the final touches on my couture dress and I must say, I'm so pleased with the result. The class was so complete and well explained that I only made one mistake that I had to rip out and it was totally my fault. I was clipping the armhole seam allowance on my lining, a silk dupioni, and since I was going too fast....CLIP...you guessed it, I clipped right through the bodice of the lining. Since it was in so many pieces, I just ripped out that piece, cut out a new one, sewed it in and voila! Hole Be Gone. Susan Khalje is a great teacher, explains everything thoroughly and has a nice, quiet manner and voice. I learned several new techniques and applied my first hand picked zipper. I'll get pictures later when I do a review of the pattern. I have to finish my "jump pleat" hem, something else I just learned. Highly recommend this class!
