What was your inspiration?
I loved watching the course. Having sewn on and off since the early sixties, mostly off lately, I was very much inspride and learnt a lot. I learnt to really take the time and care and give priority to precision and control.
What are you most proud of?
I am not done yet. I am still not sure if this model is fo me, but I thing I will give it a chance. Learing how to underline and baste exactly in the seamline, even though it meant hours or removing basting.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch the videos, and watch again with your project. Keep going with the musling until you are 100% happy (I didn't).
