TR and You

Burda Style is offering a Webinar regarding TR techniques

From their email:

"Is your design creativity dictated by darts? Do most of your garments revolve around the same style lines, with waist and shoulder darts shaping every piece you design? Revolutionize your style with a new way to create stunningly unique style lines through a process called Transformational Reconstruction, developed by Japanese designer and instructor Shingo Sato. This technique allows new style lines to be created in 3D on a dress form, by beginning with a basic garment that has already been sewn using typical sloper darts."


If they do, and you're like me and broke most of the time, may I suggest this YouTube channel and watch the real thing. There are many videos to watch, but start at the beginning and you'll be in the groove in no time.  Sato is brilliant, and watching the wordless drafting/draping is intoxicating.

On an unrelated note, my Blondini is in summer youth theater, and did props for "You Can't Take It With You". A couple of years ago, my goddaughter (for lack of a better term) was the lead in a production at her high school (Edmonds Woodway High, which we call Ed.Wood.High). They had inquired if we still had the rubber snake collection, and I could not find them.

Snakes found. They passed their audition.



During the regular year, I like to bother folks and help out with sets and costumes, but this summer hasn't allowed that sort of annoyance. Our Town is due up this fall.

I kill at aprons, baby.
