The Doll & Me Dress- Design and create a simple dress for you and your doll using patterned fabrics and machine sewing techniques. Designers will create the perfect matching look with their doll and learn about the fashion design process and how to create looks for different sizes.  Fashion show the last day of class.


The Tulip Top Silhouette- Our older student designers will explore their creativity designing and choosing fabrics for this unique top.


Our students [Fashion Designers] start with the sketch (croquis), technical details, choosing

and rendering the fabric, learning the proper way to make a pattern, including measuring each

other, understanding the importance of this process and the fit of the garment. They learn

how to pin and sew using a sewing machine.  Then, they sew the entire garment including the

final fitting. Finally, on the last day of our class, we hold our Fashion Show. During our fashion

workshop weeks, if time allows, we add fashion challenges (i.e. Newspaper challenges,

trash bag challenges), for our designers to explore their inner most fashion taste and skills. Our

designers team up with other designers for this quite unique and fun experience. No sewing

experience necessary. All fabric, supplies and use of the sewing machines are included.
