A fashion show is great fun. With shows like Project Runway taking America by storm, we find that the energy of the participants and the fun in seeing a variety of clothing generates a lot of excitement.

Fashion shows are especially fun to watch expectantly when kids are showing off the items they have made themselves. Most of my students spend one day a week from September to May learning to sew. They start with the basics and make items according to what they have learned.

June 1st was my fourth annual student fashion show. It is held every year at the Courtyard at Mount Tabor on 60th and Division in Southeast Portland. For my students to share their projects with friends and family and residents of Courtyard is often a highlight of the year. This year was no exception. With sixteen of my students participating, and great weather, we were thrilled to show off our sewing projects in the beautiful outdoor courtyard.
