The Fashion Designer’s Handbook
Learn to Sew and become a Designer in 33 Fabulous Projects

by Marjorie Galen

Sunday, January 27, 2:00pm – 4:00pm


According to The New York Times, girls age 8-12 rank fashion design their #1 dream career. Here at The Craft Lounge, we’re all about opportunities for young kids to be creative. We’re teaming up with author Marjorie Galen for this afternoon of sewing, refreshments, and fun. Each child will work with Ms. Galen to create a doll-sized dress and will go home with a signed copy of The Fashion Designer’s Handbook and Fashion Kit, so more designs can be completed at home!


Ms. Galen is an experienced craft-book author, writer and instructor who starts with the basics, teaching kids about sketching, stitches, fabrics, sewing tools, where to get inspiration, and more! In The Fashion Designer’s Handbook and Fashion Kit, she offers up 33 projects ranging from simple no-sew dresses to more challenging outfits with accessories like belts and messenger bags.


The step-by-step instructions are accompanied by photographs of the finished designs and most include suggestions for modifying the projects to make each outfit unique. As the fashionista’s skills progress, she can design and sew her own clothes; the last chapter includes instructions for three “girl-size” projects.
