    As I’ve mentioned before, my Dad gave me a few yards of beautiful Chinese silk he bought in Japan in the 1950’s. I wanted to make a jacket with it, and I needed assistance. Next thing I knew, I received an email from Craftsy alerting me to a new class – Sewing with Silks with Linda Lee. Perfect! I bought the class on the spot.

    I love Craftsy, and I have enrolled in many Craftsy classes, but not all of the classes are perfect for me. The Sewing with Silks class was one of my favorites. Linda is an amazing seamstress and an amazing teacher. I sewed along with every step and created a beautiful silk jacket. I then grabbed a black and white silk-like fabric from my stash and followed along with Linda to make a flowy shirt.  The class comes with The Sewing Workshop’s Liberty Shirt Pattern. In her class, Linda not only teaches her students how to sew with a slippery fabric, but also how to top stitch like a pro, how to do French seams, and how to make perfect mitered corners. If you want to make a blouse that looks like it cost $500 inside and out, I recommend this class!
