Atlanta part 4

Fun Times:
My wonderful room-mate and excellent weaver/couturier!!! Try mixing weaving into a couture garment and you come up with Daryl Lancaster!!!

The queen super fast Industry production of Jeans. Watch out now, who says you can't make the best jeans, and THEY actually fit. I'm working on mine. Keep checking.

Art Bra Show and Wearable Arts contestwas awesome, some creativity, if you go to an ASG function you better have your stuff together. No half done work there. These people are artist at their sewing and craft, whatever that my be: Weaver, couturier, patternmaker, wearable art, and the like.



Atlanta Part 3

Peggy Sagers and Connie Crawford are just dears to work with.

Why can't we use Connie's pattern making textbook at our school???!!!!! She makes it a breeze to learn. Check out Connie at http://www.fashionpatterns.com/. I'd buy all her books if I were you.



And, Peggy, the mother of all Industry sewing techniques. You can use couture for most things. But what about when you want to get it done fast and still keep it beautiful just as in the stores. Peggy is at http://www.silhouettepatterns.com/. She also answers her phone for questions. How about that.

Lets not talk about the Bra Making class, talking about fun. I never knew making your own bra was so great and sooooo fitting. Of course no pictures of that on, but here is a sample. Too bad its not my size, some people are blessed!

Off to Atlanta for the American Sewing Guild Convention.... OOOOH! how much learning can you get in 5 days. I am sure glad it's is summer. I will get the chance to rub elbows with the likes of Susan Khajie, Connie Crawford, Suzy Seed, Peggy Sagers, and many other wonder ladies that wrote some of the books that fashion schools are using today.

Pics to come. I'm off.
