Sofistafunk teaches skirt making 101, part deux

Friday, April 11th, 2008

Designer Rob Yonkers, former instructor at the Montclair based Bass Art Studio passes the teaching baton to us.

We entitled our 12 week Winter 08 class “Improve Couture” The basics of sewing and the bottom line fashion design.

I teach the way I was taught, my mom said here’s the machine “Use what you have to get what you want to wear” she taught me the basics saying if you can make a seam, you can make a garment.

If fashion design school is available to you and that’s how you desire to learn, by all means take advantage of all the knowledge the instructors have for you.

The girls ages range from 9 to 16 and they are eager to learn, learning and fantastic!!!
