Seven Steps to Success with Plaid, Striped, & Print Fabrics with Phyllis Bell Miller
This workshop will guide you as to select and work with different kinds of patterned fabrics: plaids, stripes, and prints. You will learn how to

2) select the correct style for the fabric's type and scale;
3) determine the amount of fabric to purchase;
4) plan and layout the garment for the best use of the fabric using the exclusive matching chart included in the course;
5) the easiest way to prepare the pattern and fabric to get professional results;
