Susan Khalje's six-day couture sewing school. And what a day it was! We spent some time getting to know each other (it's a truly lovely group of ten women), had our muslins fitted by Susan (an absolute dream), went fabric shopping, and made some good headway cutting our underlinings.
Susan is delightful; there's no other way to put it. Here she is with "bone-a-rama" (tee hee!), her very impressive carrying case for spiral steel boning.
A Fabric Place. I had brought all my fabric with me, but . . . they had some amazing finds. I couldn't resist this emerald French lace, and bought enough to make a pencil skirt.
