I also included this photo of Loes wearing the current look of her garments. The pants are all Harpo, a seminar only pant pattern. I'm wearing a peach colored tank top and a variety of over garments. The long sweater is a LH pattern and the two short jackets are new at seminar. Layers are definitely the current look. Loes's light colored top is a Bianca cut much shorter and it fits just below the waist. I think she said it is 12" from armscye to hem. The Irish for hems is a double serge, not turned hem. Very fresh, very flattering! The most significant news is how valuable The Look (electronic newsletter) will be in the future. New patterns of a commercial nature are NOT on the horizon. Rather, Loes will share new ideas and sewing tweaks via The Look.
I am not an employee, NAYY etc. I enjoy sewing these clothes and wearing them. I also enjoy the seminar experience and will definitely return. Next blog post will include the garments I made during my stay in Carmel. You will notice that traditional jackets are not currently being shown. The soft look has become more popular! More to follow soon!
