January 10, 2014: On a Roll with Roll Collars
Designing roll collars feels almost like waving a magic wand. We’re not talking Peter Pan collars here. We’re talking collars that stand up and out from the garment and fall in a graceful curve. Wendy will have a completed jacket and sample muslin variations, then walk us through the surprisingly simple process that gets such beautiful results.
February 14, 2014: Create a Personal Croquis
So many silhouettes and design details seem like a good idea on the pattern envelope, but what will they look like on you? Before investing the time in sewing a muslin, why not “audition” them on a personal croquis? Linda will show us how to make this helpful personal design tool.
March 14, 2014: TBA
Mollie is working on a presentation for us that we hope she will have ready in March. Stay tuned.
April 11, 2014: Lovely Lingerie
This one has been promised for years. Wouldn’t it be great to have a silk slip or cami trimmed in lace? We’ll explore the essential techniques, look at some samples and come away with a resource list.
