Trisha Smith May 17-20, 2017. Trisha will teach three projects in just four days. The projects are: "Francie" - Cluny Lace Heirloom Blouse, "Claire"- Madeira linen dress, and "Harper" - Sassy & Stylish A-Line Dress.
"Francie"- While we know heirloom blouses are timeless, current trends show girls of all ages wearing garments with lace. With this trend in mind, Trisha has created the perfect soft and feminine heirloom blouse to add to your special child's wardrobe. Lovely Cluny lace creates the round yoke neckline and adds beauty to the hemline and waist. Learn how to miter lace while making the V shape that accents the center front. Soft gathers fall below the waistline. Not only will you sew a beautiful blouse but you will also learn new sewing skills as you create your masterpiece! Pattern is sized 3-6 and 7-12.
"Claire" -This dress has a slight flare and a front bodice overlay. It buttons down the back and can be made from two colors of linen for a dressier look or two coordinating fabrics for a fun casual look. The focus of this garment is a technique called, "Madeira Applique", which accents the lower edge of the bodice and the hemline. Trisha will teach you a fast and easy way to get this effect. Pattern is sized 3-6 and 7-12.
"Harper" -This classic a-line shift has modern style with its cut out scalloped neck line. The neck and armhole edges are bound with shaped bias binding which adds to the ease of constructing this garment and is a major focal point. This stylish dress is great for the older girls yet still sweet enough for the younger ones. Pattern is sized 5-12.
