about participating. Amy from the blog A Cloth Habit kicked off the week with not only a bra making sew along but an awesome interview of Norma, the owner of Orange Lingerie. Norma spent her younger years sewing but put the hobby on the back burner when she started working on Wall Street – she had no time for it. Norma eventually reached a point in her career where she could branch out on her own and that’s just what she did – she quit her job, moved to Canada, and studied with the famed Bevelry Johnson (I’m reading her Bra’s Makers Manual now and like whoa! What a life changer, in the sense of bra making). My week got even better when I read that Norma would be joining the 100+ ladies involved in the sew-along, offering suggestions, tips, an advice.
I was looking over the notes I have made over the past six months and the amount that I have learned has amazed me. What I thought was correct when I first began sewing lingerie no longer holds true. Boy oh boy how I was wrong on so many things! If this is where I was six months ago, where will I be in six months? A year?
