Modifying, Manipulating, and Combining Commercial Sewing Patterns
Andrea Schewe 
Saturday, March 19

Be your own designer! Create your own fashion and costume designs using commercial patterns! Learn basic skirt drafting, how to manipulate darts and seams, and combine 2 or more patterns. 
A hands-on workshop perfect for all levels. Accomplished pattern making expert,  Andrea Schewe has been designing and making patterns for the home sewer since 1985, first for McCall's and for the last 25 years with Simplicity.
So who is Andrea Schewe?  And why is this class a great opportunity?
Andrea Schewe is a costume designer for Simplicity Patterns.  Not only is she a costume designer, but she has great experience in modifying everyday patterns that you or I would use.  To get a glimpse of her expertise in everyday language, see video she did for Threads Magazine.

 Andrea is visiting Santa Barbara for a short time.  She has agreed to teach this class presented by Grant House.

Andrea reached out to me this past fall after finding Sew Santa Barbara.  We emailed back and forth and now I can call her my friend.

Upon her arrival in January, Andrea stopped by to borrow my daughter's sewing machine.  My daughter was leaving to go back to college.    Andrea was chatting with her and was looking at her portfolio of sewing projects.

We discovered that she had made one of Andrea's patterns when she was in grade school.
