Hey, Frances! #TheSchoolOfMaking
I was able to attend a virtual workshop hosted by Alabama Chanin on August 20th on how to sew a T shirt the AC way (meaning all hand-sewn and embellished). Aside from the Zoom class taught by Sunne Meyer, we also got a T shirt kit to work on. I finished sewing it, and I love it, you guys:)
The participants had different options with the kit, and I picked the Frances top with the Aurora stencil in the plum/carmine colour way.
Here I am, out and about with the fam wearing it:)

|We even got a tag to sew on the shirt:)|
|techniques used: reverse applique, backstitch reverse applique, couching|
Behind the scenes:
|Because I shortened the shirt, I used the leftover fabric to make the matching mask, and the jersey pulls that I used for the couching.|

Here is a short video of me couching:)
Speaking of Alabama Chanin, they had a sample sale recently, and I was able to score a hand-sewn camisole dress!
