Our classes, camps and fashion birthday parties provide an introduction to all aspects of fashion design, allowing budding designers to take their first steps in to the exciting world of fashion design.

Original Pajama Pants
Make your own PJs, then go have a sleep-over in them, with all of your friends! You bring in the fabric you love, we have fun learning to sew, and then you and your friends each go home with a cute pair of P.J. pants you made yourself! Ladies, this would be a fun one for you and your friends too.
American Girl Doll Outfits
Choose from p.j. pants, a skirt, a top, or an apron. I have a tiny tea set the dolls can have a tea party with, after the girls make them something new to wear.
Lined Tote Bag
Bring in the fabric of your choice and turn it into a bag you'll use to fashionably transport everything from books for school to clothes for dance class, or all of the other stuff you need to tote around!
Make this cool across the body messenger bag that's fully lined to carry all of your stuff in style.
Come learn how to draw the industry standard nine head fashion figure in the correct fashion proportions, beautifully colored and shaded wearing an adorable outfit designed by you. Each girl will take home a full color drawing, that she can proudly hang in her room and inspire future designs!
Fashion Paper Dolls
For the younger kids, make fashionable paper dolls and decorate them with fabric and embellishments to create your own great designs! By the end of the party, every participant will have a doll and several outfits to take home and play with.
