OOP M5434 & The Fashion Show

OOP M5434 Easy Endless Options Pattern. I used View B which has wrapped fronts, tie ends and three-quarter length sleeves. This was super quick to sew, maybe two hours or less. The fabric is a houndstooth print knit from the Joanns clearance earlier this year. This was my third top for the OTTChallenge which ends April 15th. Maybe I can crank out one more, we'll see.

Below are a few pictures from the Haute Couture Club of Chicago fashion show.
After reading Cennetta's descriptions of their bi-monthly gatherings and meeting discussions, it sounded intriguing. When the opportunity arose, we decided to go. It has been awhile since we attended a fashion show. What can I say. All the garments were beautifully made! Garment after garment down the runway, perfectly fitted to each model! The talent displayed is amazing! My photos aren't the best, but I tried to capture a few. I think that is Cennetta's daughter in the second photo. Visit her blog to get a better view of her garments and descriptions of the sewing involved as well as the fashion show itself. We had a good time!

Jackie, I'm so glad you came to the show and hope you will seriously think about joining the club. It's so much fun. There are dozens of creative people involved in the "making of the fashion show". Plus we have guest speakers and workshops.
