Attending the moulage workshop was just a remarkable learning experience. If things were otherwise, my reservation would be made and my bags packed and waiting!

For anyone who is thinking about it, take the plunge, sign up and enjoy! And, you will end up with the perfect fitting pants pattern. Yippee!!!!

Holly,

You have the most important skill needed to take this class - you WANT to make pants. Seriously, this class is all about taking your measurements, drawing some lines and curves on paper, transferring to fabric/muslin and sewing it up. No special skills are required. If you can sew straight lines, you can take this workshop.

Holly, Kenneth is just amazing. He moves around the room assisting everyone and makes sure that your drafting "looks right" to his trained eye and he will guide you in the needed adjustments.

I am very excited that Kenneth is coming back to teach the trouser class. I have reserved a room for Fri. and Sat. nights. Is anything planned for Thursday evening? I am driving up from the Boston area on Friday morning and don't want to miss a get together if anything is in the works. Hope to see some familiar faces from the Moulage class. Jane
