February 2019 Quarterly with Laura Nash – Rescheduled to March


10 AM – Noon Morning Trunk Show
Open to ALL – No Fee

Noon – 4 PM Lunch & Workshop: Style Me Vintage

From Gibson Girl to Valley Girl, each era of the twentieth century favored a different silhouette and body type. In this quick time travel study of dress, we will discover the elements common to each era, what type of figure they favored, and how those features were used to create, transform, distract, embellish, enhance, and beautify. Discover your historical style of dress, and learn how to personally incorporate the elements into your modern day wardrobe to look your best whatever your figure type.

We will create a silhouettes from a body photos that will be taken at before meeting. Please wear close fitting garments (e.g. t-shirt or tank top and jeans or yoga pants).

You only need to bring pencils (mechanical pencils are great). Colored pencils, a ruler and curved ruler are optional.

Tracing paper will be provided.

Workshop FEE: $35 ASG / $55 Non-ASG (Fee includes lunch)

I love shoes….and vintage hats. I collect them both, but my collection of fabric exceeds them both. I do love all things sewing and vintage.

I am the owner, designer, and patternmaker at Sew Chic Pattern Company where I make modern patterns with vintage style. I teach online at Craftsy.com and in stores and expos, and feel so very lucky to be counted as a special collections designer at Simplicity Patterns. I love to design clothes, but everything I do has no meaning if it doesn’t help you enjoy your craft of sewing.

Welcome to this place where I talk and teach about fashion, sewing, and my life as a pattern maker.
