Totally Stitchin’ Heads to the Martha Pullen School of Art Fashion
May 24, 2012 in News
Sew Beautiful Magazine presents the School of Art Fashion, July 22-29 in Huntsville, Alabama. As part of the event, Totally Stitchin’ and Deborah Moebes have partnered to teach a 4-day class, featuring two fabulously fashionable projects.
The Baby Lock Totally Stitchin’ School with Deborah Moebes is designed for the sewist who finds inspiration online. Moebes is a blogger, designer, author and teacher, and she will be focusing on machine techniques using the Sofia 2 sewing and embroidery machine. During the 4-day class, participants will work on two projects: a print dress with princess seams and slightly flared legged pants.
While making the dress, sewists will work with a printed cotton and Vogue pattern 1152. Moebes will show how to add soft gathers, elastic casings and tiny contrast piping, among other techniques.
The second project of the school is a pair of slightly flared legged pants. During this project, you will be working with a classic twill fabric and Vogue pattern 1051. Moebes will show the proper technique for fitting pants to flatter your figure, inserting a fly zipper and welted pockets.
