I have a new found respect for those who have taught the sewing classes I have taken. I recently took on the role of teacher to my mom and it was an adventure! I’m mostly kidding, it was more of a fun afternoon than an adventure.
Did you know that Sureau is French for Elderberry? Which is a part of the Elderflower which is what St.Germain liquor is made of. Naturally I had thoughts of drinking a classic St.Germain cocktail while I was working on this dress but I had to keep my head clear.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve seen countless versions of the Archer in blogland, so I know what you must be thinking. Where is the colar? I got this fabric quite cheap with the intention of getting the fit right before using my polka dot chambray but I used every little bit just for the body so I didn’t have enough to attempt the collar. I didn’t have enough for the cuffs of sleeve plackets either and I really wish I had enough because those are two techniques I’ve yet to practice.
