Have a budding fashion designer in your midst? Sign them up for Summer Fashion Camp!

A description from Atelier Stitch about their second annual Summer Fashion Camp:

This camp is for young folks who are looking to learn and dedicate their summer to intense and inspiring fashion sewing education. No experience is necessary. They will learn how to use and manipulate patterns from the Burda Style Book Of Sewing which includes 5 master patterns for a shirt, skirt, dress, jacket and a bag to create an outfit of their own design through constructing and learning how fabric manipulation becomes an wearable garment. 

Space is very limited for this camp as lots of one-on-one attention is given to each camper. Only six spots are available for the season, age 13 and up. Each camper will also have a consultation before camp starts in order to learn more about their skill level so they can get the most out of their time!

Sounds pretty dreamy, right? I can’t imagine a better way for aspiring designers to spend their summer. For more information about the class, you can learn more here or email owner Giselle LaFrance at
