First item made for 2014 !!!

I finished my first item yesterday for the RTW Fast of 2014 ! It was my first time making an independent pattern- Grainline Scout Woven Tee.  It was very easy , but I do need to work on my fitting techniques . Need to learn to do an FBA .  The fabric is 100% cotton I got in NYC last year during the " Welcome to the World New Granddaughter " trip !!!!
My first day of class at MCC for the Couture Sewing class was great. I might be over my head , but I know I can do it . W will be making our own version of the Little Black Dress. I might make mine deep purple for the MPS gala in May .  Y is telling people he's dating a co-ed !!!
I'm looking forward to working next week with K's mom at Road to California quilt show .
My sewing is all over the board right now & I'm ok with that !
