Tunics with Style and Comfort

There is a reason that both of these clothing patterns are in the top 100.  They flatter any body type comfortably.

The schoolhouse tunic can be worn as a dress, over jeans or as a shirt.  The pleated front and back adds that extra comfort.  The 3/4 length sleeves can drape or add elastic to keep them in place.  The open bodice is perfect for layering.  AND, the pattern includes sizes from 2 to 20.

Summertime – and the Classes are Easy

Summertime….and the quilting is easy….

Let’s face it – in the summer, our customer base changes.  School teachers are home – along with the students.  Snowbirders have returned to their nests, etc. so you need to plan some classes that provide instant gratification.

These top 20 patterns meet that requirement…

Why not switch gears and teach a clothing class?  This jacket comes in sizes 8 – 24 and two different lengths.  It has a wonderful drape.  Three quarter length sleeves are supposed to take 10 pounds off and the slight flare at the waist gives you a waist – even if you don’t have one!  How great is that?  It accents all of the positives and down plays all of the negatives.  And, as a summer jacket, it would look great in batiks.
