Peggy Sagers, Silhouette Patterns Broadcasts

An index of Peggy Sagers “Let’s Sew” Videos with brief description of project and link to my personal makes. 

 

In Let’s Sew Peggy does what I love to do. Working with her base patterns she copies details of fashions she has seen while shopping. She skips all the fitting rig-a-ma-role and goes straight for the creative. I plan to put most of her projects into my closet. I’ve learned that I need a few variations to make what looks good on her 5’7″ frame look good on my 5’3″.   I also like to put my twist on things. So my interpretations won’t be exactly like Peggys. (PS some of the episode numbers aren’t exactly right)
