January Fashion Sewing Club

Another fine showing of creativity from both Treadle and Hancock this month. The mild winter seems to be helping-if you can’t ski you might as well sew (haha!) sorry 😛

Anyway, Roseanne continues experimenting with Christine Jonson’s patterns. Below is the top and skirt from Travel Trio 3.

Judy was inspired to make a wool coat to display a beautiful silver heart from Norway-

Carol attended a zero waste Vionnet-inspired class at the Textile Center and put together the tunic with vintage jewelry and then made the velvet jacket and pants to complete the ensemble.

Fur scarves also made an appearance at both locations. Sorry I didn’t get a picture but suffice it to say that the oooh’s and aaah’s pushed fur fabric sales for the stores. Scarves were made from the width of the fabric by 9-12 inches. No twist (as in the Infinity Scarf). Twice around the neck would be wonderful on a cold day like today! Negative nine degrees as I read it.

Thank you all for the wonderful show and tell that didn’t get featured here. The more the merrier (or shall we say inspirational). We will revise Club sheets again for next month-your patience and feedback is appreciated.

Stay warm!
