I'll be teaching all 4 days (2 different subjects),  presenting a fashion show Thursday, Friday & Saturday. and again 2 booths with Cutting Line Design patterns, DVD's, and show specials!



Blown Out of Proportion . . . Thu  2:30 PM, Sat 2:30 PM

Learn what proportions work best for pants, skirts, & sleeves; how to select the most flattering neckline and learn where the best placement for buttonholes is for you. You already have great patterns, now use them to
create variations…a blouse can become a jacket, a shell can become a dress, a pullover top can now have a front opening. Don't be afraid to cut across the ‘big black line’. Learn how small adjustments on your patterns will make you look like a ‘class act’…with a few proportion issued solved while still in the pattern, garment sewing becomes FUN again.


Know Your “Half” Measurements . . . Fri ) 2:30 PM, Sun 2:30 PM
You’ve always been told to measure completely around the body but, patterns
are drafted with front and back pattern pieces. Using “half” measurements,
Louise will share easy to follow changes in patterns that can make your
garments fit better. Students will receive 'mini‐pats' (quarter size scale of a
front and a back)
FREE Fashion Show Schedule . . . in the Expo Pavillion 2nd floor. Thursday, Friday, & Saturday  11:30 each day 
Every Day is An Adventure So Let’s Explore!
If you’re like most women, you wear 20% of your clothes 80% of the time. We’ll show you clothing you’ll be happy to wear every day, no matter what your day holds. ‘Cutting Line Designs’ and ‘Shapes’ Patterns offer clean lines and simple profiles that are comfortable to wear, easy to modify, and mix and match well. They can give you the look you need—and want‐‐ for the lifestyle you live today. See how you can look confident and fabulous 100% of the time. 
Plus, receive a great show program . . . 'it's  a keeper' . . . I continued to see it as a reference guide at other Sewing Expos through out the year.
