Have you ever wondered how many garment pieces you could make in a day? If you haven't you could surprise yourself with this fun-filled day of creating a dress and top to fit your style. Yes, you can accomplish two garments in less than 8 hours as you are guided through the patterns and fitting with a quick and easy method.
The pieces are interchangeable giving you three options for wearing; a dress (or tunic), a top or a dress (tunic) with a layered top. The combinations are endless allowing your creative side plenty of opportunity to make this your own. Simple, straight-forward patterns can take your look from individual pieces to mix and match creative outfits. We are pretty sure they will become your staple patterns as you grow your "me-made" wardrobe.
Join artist and teacher Debbi Crane as you explore the creative side of garment sewing with one day of sewing for three different looks.
Pre-requisite: Must have taken a Garment Foundation class or two or have the equivalent knowledge of sewing fundamentals.
Plan to bring a brown-bag lunch and/or snacks for a quick working lunch during the day.
My name is Debbi Crane and I'm a lifelong resident of Bedford, Indiana. Like many women, I wear lot of hats - wife, mom, nana, author, student, art teacher, art maker and cashier at Lowe's. I've made many things in my life, but my current True Love is garment making. I used to be a bookbinder, but that wasn't exhibitionist enough. Why should you make your clothes? It's a lost art, a survival skill, a means of self expression, a small way you can have exactly what you want exactly how you want it, and it's super fun to say "Oh, this? I MADE IT."
