Model, Seamstress & Fashion Designer Gail Chord Schuler as "Graceful Lady" Kibbe's Soft Classic
Special emphasis on this web page for those who sew their own clothes and how to apply your fashion type to your sewing projects. But to understand how to sew clothes that look stunning on you, it is first essential to understand the fashion types and which one you are.
David Kibbe’s body types, how to find your type, how to dress, do your hair, make-up and organize your closet and appearance according to your unique body type. Though Gail emphasizes the soft classic type & winter coloring here because that’s what she is, there is not a superior body type or coloring. Each person needs to analyze which type & coloring they are accurately and then go from there to create their own unique wardrobe suited exactly to their body type and that will be superior for them. Gail has noticed that she looks good in the pastel shades of her Winter coloring because she’s a soft classic, so knowing your type also helps you choose your best colors even within your coloring category (Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring).

These are celebrities who have my soft classic body type. I just learned my body type after thinking I was soft natural all these years! Going through a process of discovery. Looked through my clothes and discovered I have a lot of soft classic clothes already. When I shopped for soft natural I tended to choose the soft natural designs that tended towards classic. I have lots of suits, for this reason. My mother also gave me lots of soft classic clothes that I accepted cuz they were close to soft natural.
I started noticing that I was soft classic about a year ago, but was in denial, cuz I just never considered my appearance balanced. But I took a test for my facial lines and they came out balanced. Also, I have always bought pumps and flats for my feet for my dresses cuz no other shoes looked good on me. Those are classic styles. For a while I thought that perhaps I was classic in face and soft natural in body, cuz only classic hair styles looked good on me. Now I realize I was a full classic all along! I’m on the tall side for a soft classic, who are generally not taller than 5′ 6″. I’m 5′ 6.5″. But because I have a small head, it makes me look shorter and thus, I fall into the classic category.
I’ve been doing my hair wrong just about my whole life. It has really ruined my appearance in the past. Good thing Jesus told me to quit going to a beautician, which forced me to learn how to cut my own hair. That was what made me realize I’m a classic, cuz my hair needs to look neat and elegant for my best look.
This is a repeat of a previous video, but with stills added to highlight Gail as a soft classic. Though most soft classics are not supposed to be taller than 5′ 6″, Gail feels she is an exception at 5′ 6.5″. David Kibbe’s concepts have helped Gail to find her best look and her men have created a fashion line based on a combination of David Kibbe’s Metamorphosis and Carole Jackson’s Color Me Beautiful. A lady at a Canadian church introduced Gail to these concepts around 1988.
Prime celebrity examples of a soft classic are Joan Fontaine and Olivia De Havilland. Grace Kelly is a pure classic at 5′ 7″, but Gail still feels that she is a soft classic and not a pure classic.
Gail has just figured out she’s a soft classic rather than a soft natural. The two styles are similar so many of her clothes still work for her as a soft classic. Those who want to order clothes from our clothing line contact Gail’s men at email@example.com.
Here is the Kibbe self-test for your type.
It might help to have an objective friend also take the test for you. I never figured out my type until I continually saw myself on camera and experimented a lot with different hair styles.
Here’s a good video on determining your coloring:
The following links describe the Winter Soft Classic (Gail’s coloring and type): https://gabriellechana.blog/2018/05/07/the-winter-person-from-color-me-beautiful-by-carole-jackson/
When Gail wrote Brent Spiner letters in 1990 and 1991, she was dressed a lot like a soft classic, wearing a church dress with a pearl necklace. Brent Spiner fell in love with the “Graceful Lady”. She falsely thought she was a soft natural, but the photos she sent to Brent she was dressed more soft classic. And like a lady, her letters to Brent were pure friendship. Brent was the one who initiated the romance. Their relationship started off with Brent making all the romantic moves, unlike Loree McBride who drug raped Brent to gain an entrance. Gail was a lady with Brent and Loree McBride was a rapist. Gail was first (1990 to now) and Brent fell head over heels in love with his “Graceful Lady”. His heart was filled with Gail when Loree McBride drug raped him and gained her entrance to his life (September 1992 to now).
Gail approached Brent much like the Joan Fontaine character in the movie Rebecca, while Loree resembles the Rebecca in that movie. The difference between the movie and real life is that Brent has NEVER wanted Loree McBride! After Brent came into Gail’s life she has grown and blossomed into a strong woman, but in the beginning of her relationship with Brent she was a lot like the Joan Fontaine character in Rebecca.
HAIR IDEAS FOR GAIL
MAKEUP IDEAS FOR GAIL:
Great eye make-up Tutorial for special occasions (Gail does not have all her brushes and equipment though but will make do), except Dominique is an Autumn and Gail needs to substitute Winter colors.
He’s a little expensive, but lots of good ideas on make up for older women. I would just focus on his advice for specific weaknesses and do what he suggests there. Only a millionaire celebrity could afford all he suggests! But then he’s a professional make up artist for models.

The following are sewing patterns that Gail feels she can use to create dresses in her soft classic clothing personality. She will need to pay special attention to fabrics, and choose fabrics more on the light weight and fluid style to create the essence of “Graceful Lady”. Click on the link below each picture to get to the web page about the pattern. Jesus forbids Gail to spend money other than on food and bills, so if one of her supporters buys her the patterns/and a gift card to buy fabrics, she can start on one of these sewing projects. She has plenty of clothes (gifts from her mother), but is short on dresses in her soft classic style. In the meanwhile, she has plenty going on to keep her busy. Gail skipped 11 because it was a duplicate. Gail is a size 12 in sewing patterns.
