It’s impressive when the teacher is a well-known couture designer. More so, when he is awaiting the arrival of his new students. No grand entrances here, only real person, real people skills and real talent in the field of fashion. Our pant pattern drafting class is sensational. Mary and I trek to Manhattan to work with Kenneth D. King for five Tuesday evenings at SewFastSewEasy. The course is demanding with lots of technical details to digest and a pleasant amount of Kenneth’s “reverie.” He is a fabulous story teller and has many to share. And he encourages photographs.
The notes are complicated and he takes us through – demonstrating step by step.
I didn’t get a shot of his fabulous pony skin shoulder bag, but I’ll get a hold of one. The hand stitching gave me chills. He said is was an old leather-work stitch, so casually. Research!
We have to cut our muslins this week for homework. Oh, and he may come to the Quilter’s Alley to teach.
Please comment if you would like to have a workshop with Kenneth. The moulage, skirt, draping, dress, jacket or making a pattern from your favorite existing garment. Which class do you want?
