9:00 a.m. everyone has gathered around Susan's table, where Diane (the lady in the center wearing a black and white graphic top) has arranged her treasures: a piece of couture lace and two Chanel-inspired jackets made in previous classes.
|The jacket is one of Diane's previous creations.|
|This French couture lace (by Lesage) adorned with beading, sequins and ostrich feathers |
was bought at Mendel Goldberg we were told.
Mendel Goldberg has beautiful laces, but this one is very unique even for this exquisite store.
|This is the back side of the lace - beading, sequins and feathers are arranged on delicate netting|
|Look at this workmanship! Can you imagine how many hours it took to make it?|
11:00 a.m. Seams are done and we are queuing again to be fitted.
12:30 p.m. I end up with tiny alterations on five seams, auch! All the new seamlines are traced and I am stitching the seams again. Well, that's another three hours for perfecting the fit - absolutely worth it.
