California Confection

Cindy Foose “Foolery”

Can you spot the problem? 
Cindy Foose was preparing to demonstrate a few techniques using the front and back of this bodice she had already sewn together and discovered she had had one glass of wine too many the night she was sewing in preparation for the retreat.

Here she is chatting about the technique while holding the bodice sample

Now she can't figure out why the bodice center back will not meet up. She finally laid it out and discovered her problem. Needless to say, it is nice to know even the experts  make mistakes...

Vaune explaining the pattern lay out to some of the students.

A few samples of the embroidery that was completed for either the dress or nightgown.
