MR. BLACKWELL'S A548
In this comprehensive workshop participants learn basic couture techniques while constructing the muslin of A548 from a true vintage sewing pattern designed by the famous Mr. Richard Blackwell...or as he preferred, Mr. Blackwell.
6-Day workshop (4 hours each day).
Mr. Richard Blackwell , yes the same Mr. Blackwell that issued the infamous "Worst Dress List" every January--or after the Hollywood Academy Awards show. Before that--he was a fashion designer. The House of Blackwell ceased operations during the early 80s, but had its beginnings in the 1950s and is responsible for many of the classic fashions American women wore of the day. Blackwell brought "Dior" elegance to the everyday woman. As is evident in this beautiful pattern.
Participants will also receive a free simplicity true-vintage sewing pattern at the end of the workshop.
Supply list: 4-6 yards of muslin. All other supplies included.
