Pam, thanks so much for your great class! This is my first shirt, and I'm working on my third one now. My mom taught me to sew years ago when I was a kid, but your class has helped me remember what she taught me (and helped me learn new things, too). She would be so proud of me! I did modify the pattern some, as you can see, but your directions were so clear and your tips so helpful. It took me about a week to make this one, but I made the second one in three days, and I'm hoping to get it down to two days. Then I'll tackle a long-sleeved shirt. When I wore this one, one of my friends asked me where I got the great shirt. I was so proud to say I'd made it. Thanks so much for an excellent class, and hello from a fellow Georgian (hope to take one of your classes in person someday).

Wow!! Great job on your first shirt! You'll see that each shirt will get easier and take less time. I love the color and am so glad that your friend was impressed with your work. I look forward to teaching you in person some day :-)
