Q&A with jlgsewsandknits

Teresa Maria asked:
I love the fabric, the drape and the fit! A great job!
jlgsewsandknits answered:
Thank you!
servareginae asked:
Beautiful fabric! ...and beautiful work! The hand stitching is very nice. The couture method does take time and patience, but it is well worth it.
jlgsewsandknits answered:
Thanks. I never thought that I could ever like handstitching and now I may prefer it.
justbkauz asked:
Wow, you did a great job. I have taken the class but I used the information to make a couture jacket, still not finished but will be soon. Keep on sewing!
