Fitting Pants with June

 Welcome, Sherri (above)! See Rena show her ballerina-mouse-doll. So cute! Below, Barbara models another great top and cardigan. She is so stylish!

 June talked about how to draft a pair of pants and provided us with even more information about various types of bottoms - culottes, trousers, pants, jeans and so on. It was so interesting. And check out the pants she made from her draft below. The Armstrong text is one of her references.

 Lucretia showed us what she received through the Vogue fabrics swatch service. This booklet is complete with suggested patterns.

 And how about Rachel's wrap skirt from her spring line. It is totally charming - I especially love the pockets!
 Rita showed us her top and jacket from Cutting Line Designs By Popular Demand. She lined this fabulous jacket with the same fabric she used for her top. Gorgeous!
And look at Sandie's blue and white quilt top, soon to be quilted. It's made from those gorgeous African cottons. The picture at right simply does not do it justice!
