Description
This class was born of desperation.  Too many women wanted me to make them a camica, and I simply could not answer their requests other than to teach them to make their own.  This is an entirely hands-on class, so bringing the needed materials is necessary. We'll cut and at least begin a basic Venetian woman's camica, and look at documentary evidence for embellishment and alternate shapes. Students must bring approximately 5 yards of 3.5 oz (or finer) white linen or comparable other fiber, tailor's pencil (or a regular one if you're ok with marking cutting lines with one); Sewing machine, scissors, yard stick, general sewing implements. Without these materials it will be impossible to make good headway in finishing the project. An extension cord would be helpful.
