Having said yes to adding padding to a prom dress,
I needed supplies and headed over to the Yorktown JoAnn’s store. I found a great variety of padding
and some awesome activewear knits. (It’s so hard to buy just one!)
And then I ran into Clare LaFond! Some of you may know her from Fashion Sewing Club at Treadle but she’s been busy for the last couple of years. She has changed careers and attends Minneapolis Community Technical College in the fashion apparel area. The senior class fashion show, “Alchemy”, is this Thursday, May 7 at 7 pm. Here’s the link. Even if you can’t go, it’s fun to watch the video (you’re not in it, Clare!). And if you click on each designer you can also see a sample of their designs.
These are Clare’s-her inspiration is Frank Lloyd Wright architecture-
Anyone remember her Dr. Who raincoat using Spoonflower to design her own fabric? I’m trying hard to clear my calendar to attend the show. It would be fun to get her to do a guest appearance at Club and see the designs up close and personal.
Send all of your speedy/no ripping/problem solving sewing karma to Clare as she sews down the home stretch to the show!
