Next was the pinning of the pattern pieces to the fabric. Sophie chose a lovely lightweight organic cotton-bamboo with generous spandex for her fabric. The colour, a dusty green, is not what I would have expected her to choose but it's quite lovely. The light weight and stretch of the fabric made for fussy pinning and cutting, but she -- unlike her mother -- is patient and meticulous with manual work. She did a great job of the cutting.
what she'd done in the past. But she seems ready and motivated. She quickly got the knack of the machine, and has a nice touch on the fabric feeding. Good thing, since this fabric is not forgiving! Tonight she got a start on the main construction, sewing the front seams.
