Perfectly pairing fabrics is a sewing art, and learning how is easy when you do it the Lindsay Wilkes way. The popular blogger and author of Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: 20 Girls’ Dresses, Outfits and Accessories from The Cottage Mama built her signature style around mixing and matching patterned fabrics. Her ability to pull together multiple patterned fabrics, often from different manufacturers, lets her create truly one-of-a-kind looks for little girls.
Here, she shows the sewing enthusiast how to select and properly combine several fabrics in a single spectacular garment. She teaches about color, fabric scale, and adding trims. She demonstrates how covered buttons lend that special boutique touch to any garment and shows you just how easy they are to make.
Best of all, she rounds out her class by helping you create a modern-day knot dress based on the “Charlotte Apron Dress” by The Cottage Mama. (NOTE:This pattern is not included with the course. You may purchase the printed pattern or the downloadable pattern via Lindsay's Etsy page.) Hers is the colorful, carefree style today’s little girls truly want.
