To the ladies who took the pad stitching class, as you can see from the pictures on my site the front stay should be catch-stitched to the jacket front, don't remember if we got that far in class but in any case it must be done.
I hope what you learned in class will serve you well in future projects. In the event you do use some of this new knowledge please send me a picture I would love to see the finished product plus some pix of the work itself while you are doing it!
Have a great year and hopefully our paths will cross again in the future until then may your blessings be many and your hardships be none. Cheers.
