Race Day Fashions

Saturday, December 16, 2017

The last time I went to the races was more than 30 years ago, so race day fashions don't figure large in my life.  But a brilliant idea offered by my clever housemate has set me on this new path.  For the past few weeks I've been working on some new classes to run in 2018 at the Simply Stitches fabric store in Wagga Wagga.  My house mate tells me the Wagga Gold Cup is a big deal in the area and maybe the fashion aspect of racing would be a good motivator for local sewing enthusiasts.  And so was born the Wagga God Cup sewing and fitting classes for 2018.  This local race day is scheduled in early May so I've planned a six session program over a three month period, February to April, to get some amazing outfits together with Wagga stitchers.  The big challenge is to catch myself up on the current trends in race day fashions.  This is what I've found so far by scanning the press images of the most recent spring racing carnivals.Lace Transparent and Perforated Keep Reading...

SEWING PATTERNS

All My Sewing Patterns
These are the first of my sewing patterns as PDF downloads for you to buy and sew.  The more I sell the more time I have to make new ones.  So if you fancy supporting the work I do here on the well-suited blog, this is your opportunity.  These patterns are based on my size chart listed here on the website.


ALL MY GARMENT BLOCKS

All my garment blocks.
Garment blocks are the basic template we use to make fashion patterns.  They are not patterns in themselves as they have no design detail.  My garment blocks also don't have any seam allowances as they are never sewn together once the fit is perfected.  If you look at any of my Pattern Puzzle posts you'll see that I usually start with a block then modify to achieve my new design idea.  These garment blocks are also based on my size chart as required for the mass production of fashion clothing.
