I had planned on finishing up my summer classes before Labor Day, naturally, but Craftsy was offering one class free, so I am going to complete an even 10.

This class uses Vogue 8888, which includes French knickers, a gown or slip, a camisole, and a robe.


I also recently got this OOP HotPatterns gown and robe pattern.


I’m still working on the Sports Quilt, the Fall SWAP, and a passel of presents. I also have several classes that I have watched but not gotten any hands-on use from. These are not winter nighties, though, so I can do them in the spring.

The class is brim full of useful techniques and information, including various types of seams and finishes as well as methods for working with all sorts of special fabrics. The teacher is an MBE for her services to British sewing, if I’ve understood it correctly, and has a very cute accent.

I’m enjoying the class.
