However, readers, here are a few more highlights from the class.
All-in-one facing demo by Kenneth:
Another don't-ask-me-how technique... It went super fast and there is no way I can figure out how. But at least I remember the fly zipper application :-)
Hats by Hanna
She did some amazing job making these hats - very lovely
Louis Vuitton fabric (below) brought from Paris in one of Susan's class trips to the French capital. It's being made into a coat:
A cute leather pouch: zipper application and all the construction was demoed in the class, flowers were done earlier.
Invisible lace seams demo by Susan: another gem, readers. The jacket Susan is helping with is very sheer, and the seems needed to be treated in a way that made them neat and almost invisible.
I saw these technique on a Valentino blouse. Seams are bound into flesh-colour silk organza and virtually invisible once worn.
Honestly, readers, this was not all, we had more demos, including hand-picked zipper and other and got several great handouts with couture techniques instructions and a list of resources for all things couture.
I hope you enjoyed this review as much as I enjoyed the class. As for my jacket and pants I will be blogging on it once I am back from my holiday end of August.
