Are you ready with some nice hostess gifts for the season ahead? You’ll have tons of options after today’s Serving in Style ideas!


Today’s Guest Curator: Jessica Schunke from A Blue Sky Kind of Life

From Jessica:
Hi, I’m Jessica. You can usually find me sharing my sewing and quilting adventures over at A Blue Sky Kind of Life and on Instagram (@blueskycrafter). I took up sewing as a hobby six years ago when we moved from Texas to St. Louis and didn’t know anyone, but it quickly morphed into a passion for me; now I spend as much time as I can behind my machine. I am an active member of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild and I work part time at a local fabric store. I have also had several of my tutorials featured on Sew Can She. I love to sew everything from bags to quilts, and especially love to gift my creations to others. I hope these ideas for sewing projects will help you or someone you love serve in style this holiday season!

Gertie’s New Fashion Sketchbook: Indispensable Figure Templates for Body-Positive Design

(US shipping only.)

Author: Gretchen Hirsch
Publisher: Stewart, Tabori and Chang

For Gertie’s New Fashion Sketchbook, Gretchen Hirsch teamed up with illustrator Sun Young Park to reinvent traditional figure templates—known as croquis—for the 21st century. Instead of the unnaturally skinny, tall, and frequently off-balance croquis the fashion industry has been sketching on for decades, this game-changing alternative presents hundreds of realistically sized and proportioned female forms in balanced, lifelike poses. In addition, Park has rendered the croquis with multiple tracing lines, allowing the sketcher to follow the lines that most accurately reflect the body shape desired. Also included are an overview of the design and sketching process and a visual history of garment component styles, all to make it easier to create fashion sketches for women of all shapes and sizes.
– A body-positive sketchpad to help you achieve your fashion design dreams.
– Loaded with more than 300 figure templates that are proportionally true to the female form and adaptable to different body types, plus helpful sketching tips and resources.
– A breakthrough for aspiring and experienced designers tired of the industry standard of sketching clothing on female figures that are unnaturally skinny and tall (and sometimes even off-balance).
– Printed in a special ink that fades away when you photocopy it.

  178. susan says:

    Mmmm, those recipes look so yummy!

    Lots of fun ideas

  186. I must be hungry, today the recipes are appealing to me… caramel corn with candied pecans, how decadent. But I’m always in the mood for fabric– I would love an excuse to browse the Fabric Shoppe.
