Another student is using her class time to add a lining to a fantastic vintage dress. We cut a chiffon lining to help support and stabalize the very fragile silk crepe fabric. It is always facinating to peek inside vintage clothing and to see how they were constructed. This woman has an extensive collection of exquisit vintage finery, so learning how to put in a lining will be a skill she will use frequently.
At about 3:00 I made coffee, and we enjoyed some delicious cookies, including shortbread which has always been a favorite! One of my students is a professional baker, and excellent all around cook, and cookbook author. She frequently brings cookies, or her famous scones. YUM!!!!

I can't think of a better way to spend a winter day than sewing, and sharing goodies with wonderful women!
