Here is a picture of our fearless leader demonstrating a cool sewing accessory at ASG's National Conference here in Atlanta last week.
Ginny and I attended a class taught by Hisako Nakaya. She is a faculty member of the Seattle Central Community College’s apparel design program. I believe she teaches flat pattern design in addition to other topics. Her class with us was titled "From Darts to Design, " which involved dart rotation so as to create cool design changes in a bodice. The dart rotation was different from the way I've seen it done in the past and the opportunities for design changes were interesting.The class was superb.
Here is the cover of one of the books she recommended. I would love to be able to create architectural details like this in fabric!
