    Roberta, wish I could take those classes too, maybe you’ll spread the knowledge and teach me how to do this one day. I really like the muslin, so what are you waiting for? Sew that dress! I know you don’t have time, start with the pattern, then another day for cutting, then just imagine the final thing and that will speed you up! It will be a gorgeous dress!

    Wow wow WOW!!! This is great. I would not have thought that ruching across the bust like that would look good but it is AWESOME! Your work is excellent, so precise… they better give you A+.
