It’s been a week full of glue sticks, paints, safety scissors, crayons, stories and ABC songs. I’m happy to say that my sweet new class and I have made it through our first week of all-day kindergarten and we all still have smiles on our faces. My heart is full after a week of hugs, smiles and hanging out with 5 and 6 years olds again. Their excitement and wonder never ceases to amaze me and I think I’m gonna like this new all-day jig we got going this year. 🙂
But now that Saturday is here, it’s time to wash off the glue, fire up the sewing machines and teach something different.
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the sheer shirts that are out there right now. They’re so comfy and breezy and can transition from summer right into fall by pairing them with jeans and boots.
The beautiful drape of soft and flowy silk chiffon, light organza or georgette makes them ideal fabrics for sewing apparel. But many people shy away from sewing with these delicate fabrics because they think they are too fragile. Creating elegant garments with sheer fabrics isn’t difficult if you know the right techniques.
