Claire’s Classic Top

Bernina of OKC –  October 13th & 14th
This is a classic top pattern that I’ve been working on and perfected.  There are two views, one is a little fuller at the bottom than the other.  The class includes the pattern and you can get all your supplies in a kit from Helen Enox Fabrics – just tell them you need the Claire Classic Top kit and they will put it together for you.  This is an all inclusive class, fabric, pattern, instruction and fitting all in one class and you will leave with a top that will go from semi-dressy cocktail to jeans casual!  Get info sheet here.  $120  Helen Enox Fabrics or call (405) 685-1279. to order your fabric kit.  Call (405)840-8911 Bernina of OKC to sign up, 6817 N. May,  or contact me here for more information.


Pants Muslin

Bernina of OKC – November 10th & 11th – 10 am to 4pm
In this class Claire will fit you for your own pants muslin.  From this muslin you can make yoga cut, boot cut, pleated, side slash pockets and most all pants variations.  Making pants is a cinch, it’s the fitting that’s the hard part.  After you have this muslin, you won’t have to worry about the fit.  You take home a muslin pattern but also a CD of variations on the pant so you can create just the pant you like.  $120.  Get info sheet here: Call  (405)840-8911 Bernina of OKC to sign up, 6817 N. May,  or contact me here for more information.

Surface Design

Bernina of OKC –   December 1st, 10am to 4pm
This is a pure fun class – we will get out the paints and pens and play. Learn what tools and methods to use for best results.   Techniques on painting, drawing, stenciling, masking and other forms of fabric design.   Claire will provide stencils and paints, and information on where to obtain the equipment, stencils and pens.  Claire suggests bringing 1.) piece of fabric, 2.) cut out garment in silk, cotton, linen, or combination of above.  Some very smooth surface wool is suitable, but no tweeds, corduroys, piles or brushed fabrics.  Also polyester, viscose and rayon are excellent for this process.      Get info sheet here.  Call  (405)840-8911 Bernina of OKC to sign up, 6817 N.
