About this Article

Ali Forsythe was back in a Harper College workroom last week, laboring alongside other students in constructing a pattern for leggings, one of the basic requirements in their "Knits" class. The routine belies the fact Forsythe, of Mount Prospect, is no ordinary fashion design student at the Palatine college.
