Tomorrow I have an entire day of sewing class - it's a make up lesson for the Labour Day public holiday. 9.30 - 4.30! But we go on our 1st class excursion right after - we're going to buy cloth for our sewing projects! How fun!!!! Finally get to make an actual garment rather than sewing random lines of scraps of cloth...unfortunately the garments & patterns here are all made to a single standard size which means i probably cannot wear any of them after they are completed!
This weekend, i will attempt to make a school bag for myself - i have been lugging tonnes of stuff to school everyday and my existing bags cannot fit them all! we have our sewing kit (size of a toolbox), 60 cm long rulers, A3 sized files, huge portfolio bags etc etc....i'm going to make a huge tote using some olive green corduroy i got from queen street. the material is in the wash now before i start working with it. I miss the days where i can just run around carrying a small handbag!
Here's my trusty Elna sewing machine to help me with the sewing, ta da!
oh, and i'm working on some pieces in my dressmaking class - yes!!! i am so obsessed that i also take a dressmaking course on the side in addition to my full time course!...i've been taking part time dressmaking classes for close to a year now and it was actually this part time course that got me really interested in pursuing fashion design. still in the works now - a blouse and bustier coming up......
