Happy New Year Everyone
I wish everyone to have a Prosperous, Healthy, Peaceful, Happy New Year for 2011.
Soul Collection's starts the New Year with Soul's Pattern Collections so you can join in & sew these fun projects along with us! The Chic Fashion Lunch Tote w/Side Pocket or Side Zipper Pocket is two of several Collection's Patterns being offered w/Easy to Read Sewing Instructions. I carry my Tote, which is so convenient, everyday to my full-time profession (Sr. Technical Designer) for Ralph Lauren Sleepwear w/my lunch, supplies, a book & my Ipod or cell phone in the little side pocket :) This bag is approximately 4 - 4 1/2 hrs to make, and for your convenience, all Pattern Pieces are cut out in the actual Fabric & Lining of your choice from Soul Collection's Trendy Fashion Fabric's supply thru http://www.fabric.com & the Fabric District in NYC.
So, log onto http://soul-collections.com/patterns.htm to place your order ;)
Some of the other Patterns Soul Collections will be offering (just to name a few) is the Poncho Pattern w/variations, slightly different from the ones the students make, but just as Easy to Sew along w/Tunic Patterns, which is my favorite piece of clothing to wear specially designed by Soul Collections. And these are just some of the hottest trends for 2011 that you can find @ Soul Collections.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Patternmaking students that completed the Basic Flat Patternmaking Class in December are returning to Design using the Slopers they made from their own measurements :) I am very excited that they want to further this skill & begin to Design. If you don't utilize Flat Patternmaking, you'll never know what you can make & that is all by trial & error. So they decided they want to make a dress. So over the Christmas break, I asked them to come up with a sketch of their design & we are going to use their Basic Slopers to draft their dress. This is going to be fun!
