One Pattern, Many Ways

Today Lorraine presented *One Pattern, Many Ways* during our regular July meeting.

She focused on Nancy Erickson's jacket pattern 1945 ,as well as Peggy Sagers' Mani's Blouse pattern. And she provided many, many ideas for how best to use the patterns you have, especially if fit is challenging.

Lorraine recommends that you buy patterns, but mostly for the details. For perfect fit, don't go back to the drawing board for each and every pattern. Rather, use these TNT patterns and add the new details.

In addition, Lorraine provided an excellent hand-out with numerous resources.

Last, but definitely not least, she demonstrated the concepts with her own beautifully sewn garments.

Many thanks to Lorraine!

And, as always, we had a great show n tell session.

    Great write up, Martha! Thanks for all you do to keep our blog interesting and up to date.
