This presentation will be both a talk and a question and answer session with photos and samples of the design and construction techniques used in several of Mary Holland’s finest couture pieces under her wearable art label, “MaryGwyneth.”
Mary Holland has been sewing since she was five years old, and designing and constructing clothing and costumes since she was a teenager. She learned embroidery and hand sewing from her Victorian-era grandmother, and basic machine sewing and garment construction from her mother. She continued her study by practicing techniques described in fine tailoring and garment construction books. Now retired from a professional career in software and IT, she has been producing wearable art since 2007.
