Bring your ideas and your patternmaking skills and take advantage of our guided lab.  Design, develop and produce the garments of your choice.  Produce your next clothing line. Do your work with the help of Sharon Blair.  Blair studied in Paris.  She has written several articles for Threads Magazine.  And she has taken many local designers through producing their collections and even helped some get on and win Project Runway.

Tackle more difficult projects.  Resolve fit issues.  Master tricky construction issues.

Let your ideas run free!  What do you want to create today?  Bring it here and we’ll make it happen.

AP&C  1- Create your patterns from the flats you made in Concept & Development.  Fit & alter them on dress forms or people.  Finish with fit approved prototypes.

AP&C 2 – Source your fabrics.  Cut and sew  on PFI’s industrial machines.  Check the fit.  Finish with garments ready for shows, portfolios and for sale.
