Late to the party. Great thread. The work is amazing. Congrats to your girlfriend (my wife is an excellent seamstress and she is incredibly impressed with her meticulous work). The photo essay is superb. With you guys every step of the way. Your girlfriend is making family heirlooms. Wonderful stuff.

This is, hands down, the best SF thread I've ever seen. I think it may be time for me to break down and get my mother to teach me how to sew. Thank you so much for sharing!
