A Personal Invitation from Joyce Simons Murphy: Make Pants with Me in 2017

Over the years, I have been working to find the perfect title to capture our trade. And then the light dawned! This quest is my quest. This is a personal need. I've been looking for the perfect title for me. Who am I? Who do I want to be when I finally grow up? What do I want to teach?" These are the question I'm asking myself at age 70.

Dressmaker? No. I don't wear dresses as a general rule and I've never been one to "dress up." That's just not me.

Tailor? Maybe, but tailor is so masculine and I want to express my feminine side. After all I am a woman.

Pantsmaker? Voila!!! That's IT!

I live in pants. I want to style them. I've been fitting them for years on every body type under the sun. I've written about them until I'm blue in the face and now I can stay at home and continue to teach for as long as I am able to get out of bed in the morning and put on pants. What an exciting adventure for a freelance educator!

If you are ready to begin your training as a Master Pantsmaker come join me. I will show you and tell you about what I know and then we can travel to new places as we build upon my base of knowledge together. The first course is ready with the next one not far behind! Please join me! You will be glad you did!
