Atlanta Sewing Stye All Ankara Featured in Sewn Magazine!

I never wanted to live in (near) Atlanta, but I must say, it has brought some special people and moments into my life.  Including this talented group of people!  A group sharing a common interest and the blessed ability to sew our own clothing! 

Apparently, the talents of the group caught the attention of the owner of Sewn Magazine.  We were asked to create something from any pattern of our choice, using Ankara/African Print fabrics.   
We ventured to the historic Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia, and it was great spending that time together on a campus so rich in history.   

I went to my fabric collection and found this beautiful blue creation to use with McCalls 6741 View C.  I'm all for using simple patterns/designs for fabrics that make statements all on their own.
 used this pattern in the past to create a peplum style top

It's a great pattern for beginners.  It has princess seams which makes assembly extremely easy and when fitting others, it is so much simpler to pin and sew princess seams along the body without having to deal with intercepting seams.  Additionally, it makes alterations less of a headache.  

The talents within the group have attracted lots of attention and I'm so excited and blessed to have been invited to Atlanta Sewing Style.

Many thanks to Shawn Dowdell for being patient with so many women!
