I teach sewing to students in organized classes as well as individuals.
Here are some projects by a young student of mine.
(Sorry about the picture quality- I was using my phone.)
She sewed the above top, skirt and sash.
Top has a velcro closing in back and the skirt has an elastic waist.
This skirt has a back velcro closing. On the pattern envelope, it showed a poodle skirt, but my student wanted a tiger skirt! Very creative- good job!
We used Steam-A-Seam to attach the tiger.
