Since my kitchen table is the center of all my activities.
Awesome video on making a bodice
I found this video on you-tube(don't remember how I came upon it), But its really good. I have a few books on teaching how to make your own patterns, but I know that some people need to see what they need to do. In these video's she shows you what to do.
you need to click on her you-tube page to find the other video's. They are well put and very helpful.
