More Classes

I decided to add a class before the holiday season in response to requests (thank you all for your validation!)
This one will start October 21 from noon to 3:00 and as before will be a 12 hour workshop session. The price went up a bit...to $110 but it is still a great deal. Check out Teachstreet for more Info.

Vintage Root recyCouture

Both of these dresses started way back. The top one one started as a chemise from the 20s with problems, holes. The holes were appliqued over which forced design challenges. How to cover holes and balance the overall look without being obvious.

The bottom one was a 1930s dress that was getting fragile, possibly due to the lead in the dye. The top was cut from the bottom and given a tulle hemline. The skirt was adjusted with a stretch band top from recycled pantyhose. Works great now with retrograde charm
