Tucks and Texture
This season features traditional sewing in all
its forms with a special emphasis on quilting.
Get ready to redefine the word "traditional" as
we integrate some common quilting principles
into fashion sewing with fantastic results!
There are many different ways to manipulate
fabric for a textural look and feel. Especially
in a monochromatic color scheme texture really
stands out. Rebecca Kemp Brent starts out with a
tucked bolster pillow – it's a traditional
technique and look that complements many
different décor styles. Then, it's a traditional
quilting technique in a nontraditional way as
Angela Wolf uses a walking foot to quilt a
jacket. We finish up with flat felled seams -
common in quilting, but incorporated into
clothing with Janet Pray.
