patch pocket.
Charity Irvine fashioned an
unlined watermelon print jacket
with two front patch pockets and
casually cuffed long sleeves. Her
coordinating blouse has a vest bot

black buttons, which look like
watermelon seeds.
Kristin Johnston chose rasp
berry and teal colors to create her
lined, wool suit and blouse. The
plaid jacket features six bound but

and a hand picked zipper. She said

bound button holes.

Perfect for parties, the dress falls
above the knee and features side
front and side back seams, a back

sleeves were the greatest challenge
as they are silk organza and
required accurate marking to

Sonja Smith is ready for the
next blizzard as she stitched a
classic wool coat with bound but
tonholes, a notched collar, and
patch pocket styling that flows eas

fitting, lined wool ensemble. Her
double-breasted tweed blazer fits
above the hip. Shaped shoulders

and back slit opening.

Hong Kong seam finishes, and

Every one a winner
Although every participant did
not receive a ribbon, Alletta
Schadler, Lebanon County home
economist and chairperson of the
regional competition, said, “All
the participants are winners in the
best sense of the word. They have
taken the raw materials of fabric
and pattern, added a measure of
creativity, applied hard work and
the techniques they have learned to
create a unique garment. They
have completed the project they set
out to do to the best of their ability.
They have met new friends and
learned more about themselves in
the process.”
In addition to winners chosen to

for their projects. Senior division
