The Preteen Classic (Sew Beautiful, Spring 1989)

*The collars questions come from one Jeannie Baumeiter, who I am assuming is related to the more well-known Jeannie Baumeister.  It’s kind of nice to know that one of the most accomplished hand sewers out there was once a novice in need of advice… gives me hope that someday my stitching will be as amazing as hers.  Probably a totally false hope, but we all need things to live for!
