2.  The principles of sewing fabric skirts to knitted bodices can be applied to anything you want to make in any size!  Always wanted to make a light, twirly sun dress?  You can!  How about a wedding dress, or a nightie?  Of course!

3.  Joan McGowan Michael has over 25 years of experience as a professional clothing and knitwear designer.  Her company, White Lies Designs, specializes in unique, romantic, vintage-inspired cardigans, pullovers, and tops .  Her 2007 book, Knitting Lingerie Style, contains thirty beautifully constructed garments with instructions for a wide range of sizes.  In short, she knows a lot about flattering and fitting your figure!

4. For this workshop, if you bring a friend, you’ll get 50% off their registration price — or, to think of it another way, 25% off for each of you!  Pretty nice!

5. When you leave, you’ll have a beautiful, unique project ready for any special baby in your life and be a hit at the baby shower!
