This week you’ll see some real garment basics. Gretchen is back with a pretty blouse that could easily time travel from the 1950’s until now. You’ll learn how to add a placket to a fold and transform a basic blouse into one with back buttonholes.
Peggy Sagers walks you through three different shirtwaist designs. These are right in style and wonderful for summer dressing. I was in a well known fashion forward store today and the first rack of dresses I saw were . . . you guessed it . . . shirt waist dresses! With modern fabric and a few other fashion updates these dresses don't resemble anything outdated or old fashioned. Quite the contrary, they are very contemporary, with the potential for many variations. Depending on the fabric they can have a sporty, casual look, or a style that’s suitable for career wear.
