The making of the Moderne American Modiste

 Join Teresa LaQuey, custom clothier and designer for Simplicity Pattern Company, as she brings vintage sewing patterns to life!

In this fashion show, we celebrate the golden era of American home sewing by showing not just a bunch of pretty sewing pattern covers — but also what garments look like when they are made up and modeled.

Come and feast your eyes on this fiesta of fabric, design, and stitching!

That's today, December 3, at 2pm at the Concourse Exhibition Center. Admission is $10.

  1. This sounds marvelous! Unfortunately for me, I work weekends.

  2. AW man! I’d love to see that!

  3. Wow, I wonder if anyone filmed it – that would be fascinating. What a lovely illustration too – killer 50’s elegance in a halter dress.

  4. aawww…I wish! That would be a little far for me though.

  5. Would’ve loved this– I saw this post too late. :(
