The Atlanta Chapter of the American Sewing Guild celebrated September, National Sewing Month, in style with a Fashion Show. All the fashions were designed and/or made by our talented members. Anthony Williams, Designer, and known from Project Runway Fame, was our guest speaker and MC for the show.
What can I say about Anthony, he is extremely talented, professional, endearing, and HILARIOUS. We all had so much fun!
For those that didn’t see the show, and for those that want to relive the fun, enjoy the following pictures.
Not too long ago a friend from ASG sent out an email about a free downloadable pattern from Marfy Patterns. I had never heard of them before so I thought I would check them out, who doesn’t like something that is free. Right? On the website there were three free patterns, a top, skirt and jacket. I felt like I had hit the mother load. LOL I downloaded all three of them and decided to make the cute top. In this article I will show you the steps in how to tape the downloaded pattern together, because there definitely were some challenges that I will explain. I will show you the solutions I came up with, and the link to the free patterns, if they are still available when you read this.
What I have learned about Marfy from their website is that they are an Italian pattern making company. They hand make each pattern and are known for their workmanship, styles and precision. Find out more about them here. I personally can’t wait to try one of their actual patterns (not a downloadable one). Their styles are fabulous!!!
