Hello, my name is Heidi Emmett. As a young girl it was simple Barbie clothes and fashion shows with blankets for gowns As a teenager I began a 25 year career in all things fabric. I have come full circle and feel blessed to be able to create patterns for clothing that are easy to sew and fun to wear. Quilt them, piece them, bead them, felt them; so many ideas and so little time! I long ago ran out of wall space for art, so now it is Art to Wear!View all patterns by designer (7) »
There are two ways to print these pattern pieces: First method: Print full-sized on a 24" x 36" printer, the kind found at a reprographic shop (blueprints),or Staples. Download the pattern pieces onto a flash (thumb) drive and take it to the print shop and have them print them on the 24" x 36"paper. Second method: The fragmented method, (Piece A, Piece B etc.) where you print each pattern piece on regular sheets of printer paper and tape the sections together. Instructions and materials list will also print on a regular printer.
Another "Art-To-Wear" pattern from designer Heidi Emmett! Each vest
finishes just below the hip for a slimming silhouette. Adjustable sides
add to the "skinny" look. Make the most of your large-scale printed fabrics with your own version of this versatile design.
