Q&A with maryjohns1776436

David Page Coffin asked:
Looks great, well done:) Is he wearing sleeve garters?
maryjohns1776436 answered:
Thank you. Yes he is wearing sleeve garters. He is a blacksmith, and likes his work shirts (which this is) to be loose fitting, especially in the arms, but he doesn't like the excess fabric around his hands, hence the garters. The fabric I make his shirts from is usually heavier that normal shirting too, more like ticking. It seems to deal with the sparks a little better :)
zandi asked:
How long have you been sewing. I asked because I consider myself a beginner but I'm a fast learner who can follow good detailed instructions well. I would like to try this class but wondering if it's too advance for me. I have done a skirt making class and beginning tailoring tech class. I think you did a fabulous job on the shirt, congratulations!
maryjohns1776436 answered:
Hi, and thank you for the compliment. I have been sewing a long time, but still, wouldn't consider myself advanced!! I would say if you are happy and confident with making a shirt from a regular pattern and instructions, then this class is great. I really loved it. It is more about how to change the details to make any pattern your own, rather than how to sew a shirt from start to finish. I found all the new information in this class, very easy to follow and well explained. Good luck and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
