Genesis Too™ Talking Pattern™ off to the printer!
Yea - I'm only an hour or so away from sending off Genesis Too™ to the printer and my techy son for their part of the 'labor of love' of creating a new pattern! The only real job I have left - other than proofing (no small job!), is to trace off the nested size pattern pieces for Front, Back, and Sleeve...and THAT will have to wait til I return from the Spring Quilt Market and some family moving work.
At any rate - it is due to be available June 15 - and I've put it up at my site for pre-orders at this time. Please understand, if you order, you DO pay for it NOW, but you'll have to wait until it is ready before I can ship it - obviously!
From the pattern back: Seeing the sweatshirt as 'fabric and matching ribbing' fast forwards you through fitting issues, and moves the sleeve seam to the natural shoulder location. An extensive Embellishment library full of techniques, photos, AND Design Principles will help give you options, AND filter your decisions. This style is developed for the beginner level - though all sewers will enjoy the creative process. It is PERFECT for classes and workshop experiences!

Londa's Way of Setting in Sleeves just posted on YouTube

Yea - finally had my son tape me setting in the sleeves on the linen jacket I made using my Chosen pattern collar design and embellishment. I need to finish that Blog post as well - but I've been VERY busy on my new pattern: Genesis Too™!
Anyway - go see it at the Free Info Tab at my this link: Londa's Way of Setting in Sleeves - It's all in the Fingers!
Try it - I think you'll like it - and let me know how it goes for you!

Perhaps I can just embed it here - I'll try - Ahhh I see it worked!

Your comments HERE and at YouTube much appreciated! Also - if you have questions- ask away!
