Lynda Maynard, my famous teacher

I started another summer class tonight, Copying Ready To Wear, with Lynda Maynard at Canada College in Redwood City, CA.

Lynda is a fun teacher with a laid back style.  

Lynda is also becoming famous! She is featured in her own new Crafty Class, sew-the-perfect-fit and was also published last year: 

The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques: Essential Step-by-Step Techniques for Professional Results

How lucky am I to be in this program? Seriously lucky.  : >

The garment I am copying is a thrift store find from Pleasanton, a sleeveless dress fitted at the top, with a scoop neckline and then very full flaring out starting half way down the bust. 

The color on the one I am copying is not good on me but I embroidered red trim on so it looks better.  I want to make this style in another color (Red!) as it is a very comfortable sumer dress.  People seem to like the cut on me and I do as well.  I think I could easily make multiples and live in them all summer.
