Nancy‘s dress is a Christine Haynes pattern made with reversible sweater fabric.
She actually made these shoes, hand-sewing the sole on with blanket stitch. Suzanne draped sari fabric for a self-designed wedding dress, sewn over her own custom-boned corset. (Sewn in the midst of pre-wedding festivities & milling guests.)
In June, the Atlantic Sewing Guild celebrated its 20th anniversary with a show and tell of garments members had made in the past. Members were asked to bring whatever they liked from their sewing past to show. Below is a gallery of some of those garments.
Here are the pictures from our April meeting that was the Great Halifax Sewing Bee, as a little preview for what’s to come in the videos over the next few weeks.
Photos are in chronological order of when they were taken. Please click any to enlarge and scroll through.
As more photos are sent to me, I’ll add them in. Should plenty more be added, I’ll send a reminder for people to have another look at this post. Most people were pretty involved so there’ll likely only be new photos of finished garment.
