In this lecture demonstration class Shirley talks about the creation of her one-of-a-kind art piece opera jackets. She describes her jackets as wearable paintings. To assure the total uniqueness of each piece, the opera jackets are created from vintage clothing. Each jacket is named and has it’s own illustrated story book detailing its personal fashion history. In this class she will talk the student through the creative process step-by-step. She will discuss the use of color, texture, and proportion in the creative process. The class will feature 15 completed jackets along with some "in progress" so the student can view the complete process.

This three hour class features 100 vintage garments form the 1890’s thru the 1960’s. These garments are from the instructor’s collection of vintage clothes used in the creation of her art piece jackets which are the subject of Friday nights lecture. The actual garments are shown allowing those who attend not only to see, but feel and sketch the fascinating designs and treatments of past fashion decades. Unlike the couture designs in fashion museums shown only behind glass, these dresses, some from ready-to wear, some hand sewn, worn, loved and saved by everyday women can be touched and examined by the student. The garments will also be shown on slides to enable everyone to see. This seminar studies the DESIGN, FABRICS. CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES and EMBELLISHMENT used in each fashion decade. At the end of the seminar the student is encouraged to examine and sketch any of the garments that interest them.

The above seminar will be available at the following American Stitches Shows

You, The Pattern and Sewing Success!

If you love fashion sewing and want to learn more about using the commercial pattern successfully, mark your calendar and join us for this fun, informative class.

"What size pattern do I buy when my top and bottom don’t match?"

"Looking good in what I make is what I want! How do I know that a pattern is going to look good on me before I buy it?"

"It seems I find myself re-inventing the wheel every time I try to sew for myself. Is there an easier way to have success without making a muslin every time?"

Spend time with Shirley Cunningham, artist, teacher, lecturer, author of THE DRESSING ROOM, and creator of FOR THE FIT OF IT. Shirley is a fashion designer and real pattern pro. She will have the answer to these and many more of your questions. She also will reveal hints for avoiding those pattern pitfalls that plague us all.

You will leave this class saying, "If only I had this information years ago! At last I understand the dreason and the solution for so many of my fashion sewing problems of the past."
