Saturday Seminar: "Trick up my Sleeve" with Fiona Ellis
Saturday, February 13, 2021
Sleeves are a complex part of a garment. They can add style and interest or dramatically change the overall silhouette. A sleeve has several different components each of which can be modified. Combining variations of these components with each other has led to a seemingly endless number of styles.
Fiona will begin with an illustrated journey through sleeve styles and design, looking at when and why various styles became popular or fell out of favour. But the journey doesn’t end there… we will move onto the basics of modifying a published sleeve pattern. This will be an invaluable tool to enable you to ensure a better fit for your specific project; how to lengthen or shorten a sleeve, or maybe even change its shape!

You'll learn so much from Fiona (just like Barb and Cynthia)!
