I would love to take a course where I learn how to change the size of a pattern to fit dolls that are not quite the size of a given pattern – that would be fun, as I have dolls that no one is designing patterns to fit them – maybe I need to take a class that would teach me how to make pattern sizes? I do not know how to describe it properly. I can usually alter something to make it work, but it is easier if it fits when you sew it.after altering, one has to take the garment apart to make a pattern – there has to be an easier way :) I love learning new things – I like any class, and I love meeting new friends.

What a golden opportunity!

1. "I’D LOVE TO TAKE A PIXIE FAIRE CLASS THAT SHOWS ME HOW TO Professionally design and sew my fashions.
My seventh grade sewing class was my first and only exposure to a sewing class, and I’ve been sewing, designing and inventing items on various old, partially working machines for 45 years since. ( am I that old?!!) Last spring I pooled funds to purchase a modest machine by today’s standards, and keep trying to invent my niece’s “AG team” ( she has a collection of them, this fortunate girl) a wardrobe closet and bedroom accessories. It would be an amazing experience to learn how to truly design, srw, and fit her AG dolls.
Techniques learned will be invaluable to professionally sew and embellish purses for Zambian girls, as well! It would give me such confidence in my craft to do it correctly.
It would also be a blessing to learn to design patterns to print! I could give back to the Pixie Faire community for all the free patterns I’ve downloaded- used or not.
