hands-on classes have helped students move past the basics and create
beautiful custom designs on their own… designs that not only work with
their specific body type but also capture the latest celebrity trends

my love of sewing with others... and more importantly, this instruction
has enabled my students to create some amazing outfits!

In fact, this newsletter has
everything you need to create a stunning, fashionable wardrobe… and the
best part is, you’ll never have to settle for buying off the rack again!
After years of teaching design in a
hands-on environment, I’ve realized that what my students really needed
was something that would help them take that next step…
that would give them the tools they needed to create complex designs
Something that would help them create that WOW factor and become the
design divas they aspire to be!
fact, you'll notice that I refer to my students as "sewists"... that's
"sew" + "artist" - a term that I've come to use often because designing
is most certainly an art and while we may wield a needle and thread
instead of a paintbrush, the designs I've seen my students create most
certainly qualify as masterpieces!
And because of this, I’ve purposely made sure that this program doesn’t
waste time on teaching simple basics… instead, I skip how to thread a
machine, sew an apron in an hour or press a seam and go straight to the
What that means is that you’ll finally have access to the tips and
techniques that I use to create all my stunning designs!
it all started for me…
Like most sewists and seamsters, I started with my Barbie. She was a
great doll and could do all the things I couldn’t… party all night,
sleep all day and all without worrying about school or chores!
my Barbie sorely lacked a wardrobe for this global jet-setting life and
I was happy to fill that void for her, designing and sewing an
extensive Barbie wardrobe all by hand. Of course, as my skills
progressed so did my projects and it wasn’t long before I started
looking for ways to apply those skills to my own wardrobe…
I just wasn’t accomplished enough. I could fake a few things but when
it came to those tell-tale professional finishing techniques, I was
lost. Even though I knew I could do it, I hadn’t yet learned those
“advanced” techniques that would allow me to create the couture styles
I was dreaming about.
And then I met my mentor.
What started off as a 10-week sewing course turned into about 10 years
of design discovery! My teacher taught me everything from cuffs and
lapels to working (successfully!) with plaid and the minute she
suspected a particular technique intimidating me in any way, she made
me sew multiple patterns using that technique so that I would never shy
away from it again.
It was during this time that I attended a local fundraiser featuring
none other than Issac Mizrahi and I designed a full formal dress for
the occasion. I introduced myself to Issac as a “little local designer”
and in that wonderful voice of his, he said, “Darling, no one
is little… you look smashing!”
It was then that I realized that truly creative people aren’t just in
it to create – they’re also very generous about helping others find
that groove as well. Issac was not only supportive, but also very open
about his process, what he does and what he likes. He didn’t denigrate
or discourage and that was exactly the boost I needed!
And now it’s my turn to pass this
wisdom off to you!
for my newsletter series and I’ll share everything I know about custom
I’ll show you how to create magnificent pieces that
work with your unique shape and style… pieces so beautiful and
flattering that you’ll never want to buy off the rack again!
I too, have
experienced the immense disappointment that comes from not being able to sew garments
that looked professional...
I know what
it's like to wear clothes that don't fit the way they should...
I know how it
feels when you don't have the skills, techniques and knowledge to
complete a project successfully...
understand the frustration of knowing what I want to wear, but not
having the knowledge to pick the right patterns and fabrics to make it
that's why I want to make sure that as an aspiring sewist, you have
everything you need to create the wardrobe of your dreams!
Overcoming Your Fear...
"I had the concept of experimentation
reinforced. I have often had problems because of perfectionism and fear
of "ruining" a project because of lack of experience. Claire emphasized
the importance of trying new things and also that fit was something
that is attainable by anyone willing to try.
Thank you so much for making it possible for me to take part in your
Rhea, North Carolina
Love the Encouragement...
"I wanted a useable dressform and I got it! It
has turned out to be so much more beneficial than I originally imagined.
I loved-loved-loved the class. It was worth every penny. The
encouragement and "light at the end of the tunnel" feeling was as good
as having the nice dressform finished!"
Everything Can Be Fixed...
"I really enjoy being with other sewists who
"get it" and speak the same language.
The most important thing I learned was that EVERYTHING can be fixed!"
Okay, okay… so I know what you’re
asking … how much?

Fabric Use Chart
One of the most frequent questions I get is how to
match fabric to pattern or garment. This is a great brief
chart to walk you through some ideas, that can allow you to start
making intelligent and sound choices toward matching garment to fabric.
This is a concise document meant to take to the fabric store with you
so that while you are working with one or another garment, and you see
some fabric that you would love to make up, but don’t know what pattern
to look for, this is a great place to start. I don’t know
about you, but I get side tracked all the time when I’m at a fabric
store, and I have 30 plus years of working for clients, and I still get
side tracked. A guide like this is like having me with my 30
years of experience in your back pocket.

How to Care for Your Knit and Stretch Garments
Although you may think that this is a fairly easy
job, after you have spent your good time working on a knit or stretch
garment, the last thing in the world you want is to mess it
up. Junk fashion is one thing, but your fine knits and
stretch garments can retain their elasticity for a long time with the
right care. This guide outlines what you can do to keep your
garment looking like new and clean.
These guidelines are so that you won’t make the
mistake I did, after I completed some of my most favorite garments, and
they were ruined very quickly by my poor care of the knit
garments. One of the amazing things you’re going to find is
how much finer, heavier, better-made and sturdier your knits are than
the cheap stuff at Target or WalMart. Why take the
chance. This guide outlines all the tools and techniques
you’ll need to keep your garments fresh, and believe me there are some
simple techniques, but you will want to know them.
A Complete List of Tools to Have Close to Your
Machine and Why!
This is an extensive list of my best
recommendations of the tools that I use next to my machine.
This includes the small and seemingly insignificant to the best you can
buy. Some of this is basic, and some of it is very helpful
and may seem minor until you use them, and then suddenly, you have a
Including links where to purchase them, this is an
invaluable list of everything you will need and then some. I
also explain why I have each of these tools by my side when I’m sewing
and why you should have them..

Sewing Machine Feet - What are The Must-Haves,
Essentials and Extras that Can Make Your Sewing Easier and More
Yes, your machine may come with some of these
feet, but if you want to get some extras, where do you start?….what do
they do?…and how much do you really need them? Here I explain
the difference between the feet that you can not sew without, and those
that are lagniappe. Why buy all the feet only to find out you
really don’t need them.
In this report, you’ll learn not only the feet
you’ll need but what they do and why I recommend them in the order I
do. Again, this is all to save you time and money so that you
can get down to creating your fabulous wardrobe instead of out there
figuring what’s a good foot and what isn’t!
The Machine Needle - What Do They All Do and
Why You Need Them (or Don't!)
This was a lot of fun to put together because I
have been round and round with my needles. I’ll be honest, I
really didn’t think you needed anything other than a sharp eye for
sewing on your machine. Oh how wrong could a person
be. I can not tell you the headaches (and heartaches) I went
through just to get to the point where I learned that a simple
dang-fangled needle makes a huge difference in how your machine
works. It’s worth it to pay attention to this and get this
list of specifications that helps you make your sewing more

My Most Favorite Way of Designing Patterns...
Just Read It And You'll Love This Technique!
Honestly, this is the main method I use to create
so many of my patterns for my fabulous clients. After I use
this technique there might be a little tweaking here and there, but
this is the best and most efficient method I know.
For 30+ years I’ve been designing and making
wedding, debutante and formal wear for my clients. For me to
be the most efficient at time management for them, just makes the price
that much lower for them, and more efficient for me, so I constantly
have been working to make sure that I am using the most time efficient
management when it comes to sewing for my clients, and this technique
has been in my arsenal for decades and I would be lost without it.
