Register for this week's web seminar on combining patterns.
Do you love to sew but are frustrated with the limited options presented by commercial patterns? Do you lack the technical skills to draft your own patterns? If you have ever wistfully sighed over a gorgeous dress that would be perfect if only it had sleeves, or otherwise wanted to customize your pattern to make it the most stylish, figure-flattering look for YOU, this web seminar is for you!

We’re so excited for this week’s web seminar! On Thursday, Dec. 5th, expert sewer Darcy Lewis will present Combining Patterns: How to Personalize Your Sewing. Darcy opened her own studio in 2008, offering ready-to-wear and custom designs, and her work has been exhibited and sold at the Denver Art Museum, the Mizel Museum, and Threads magazine, along with many others. We’re thrilled that she’s bringing her expertise to Thursday’s live web seminar.

On Thursday, Darcy will teach you how to combine different commercial patterns into a single garment to tailor your style and look. With just a few simple steps, you’ll be on the way to adding sleeves to sleeveless garments, adjusting the neckline, changing the styles of the sleeves, cuffs, cut, and other more! You won’t want to miss it. Click here to register!

With step-by-step photos and clear explanations, this live web seminar will guide you through this process and empower your inner fashion designer! The web seminar is ideal for you if you are using commercial patterns, but don’t have the technical proficiency or the time to draft your own patterns and make big changes to patterns.

    The webinar you have given today was so inspiring, clear and straightforward to the point. Thanks to Darcy Lewis effort she took to share her thoughts and experiences with us. I believe I will benefit a lot from all methods she presented.
