Susie looks smart and comfortable in her knit dress. The fabric is reversible and came from Stone Mountain and Daughter in Berkeley, CA.

Diana finished her stylish garment bag that she started at Auburn.

Here is Jeanne in a great knit fabric she found in Europe for this Vogue blouse.

Jasna finished her knit dress. The pattern was copied from one of Jane's ready to wear dresses.

Susan made this cotton printed casual summer jacket and used a striped fabric as a trim.

Student's gather in Jane's studio for a day of beading.

What a fun way to spend a Saturday.

Cathy is starting to make a French couture jacket. She is cutting out each pattern piece separately. Jane had fitted a muslin on her, and she is using the muslin pieces as her pattern. Here are some examples of other sewing students couture jackets, and some couture jacket construction notes.

Joy finished her flattering rayon Batik dress . She bought the fabric on line, and used a pattern she had used twice before.

Santina puts her little featherweight with a walking foot to work as she quilts her lap quilt.

Kathleen's top is constructed using Marcy Tilton's Vogue 8709 pattern.

Vicki made the blouse, skirt, and Issey Miyake coat (Vogue pattern 1257) as part of a Swap Challenge.

Vicki's dress is part of the Swap. For this dress she used Sandra Betzina's Vogue V1234.

Vicki made about 10 garments and they can be viewed here.

Dear Laura (far left) made us all beautiful aprons.

We thought Christmas had arrived in April.

Roberta wore a cute jacket to Jane's Chanel Inspiration Challenge. She made it from a dark grey sweatshirt which she then embellished with ribbons and fabric strips and added covered buttons.

Lark's wonderful sense of color sure shows in this fabulous quilt.

Ellen finished her beautiful silk charmeuse blouse to wear with her vest.

There is an abundance of lovely handwork detailing and the vest is lined with the same silk charmeuse. Ellen worked on this blouse while she was on Jane's Asilomar Sewing Vacation this spring.

Thea has a busy life with young children, but she still can occasionally come for a night of sewing and friendship in Jane's studio.

 

 

Jane made this four panel bias skirt and draped the top on her dress form with the leftovers. She used her Bernina 820 to add some machine embroidery.
