Tucked away in an old building in Amir Omar Street in Clemenceau, Sabrina Cesari, a fashion designer and founder of Pause Couture, which provides sewing classes for women, is busy at work. On Tuesday mornings, Cesari, who is of French and Italian descent, waits with her Lebanese fiance and friendly dog Woody for two students to arrive for her morning class. She typically takes on four students and gives each her full attention. Cesari prepares class materials before her students arrive, laying out patterns on a large wooden table. Cesari provides all course materials, including her own fabric stockpile and plenty of thread and needles along with three sewing machines and one overlock machine.A month old, Cesari's fashion blog covers fashion trends, personal style and her workshops and personal sewing projects.Cesari plans to develop her workshop and her blog to inspire more people.
