This summer I took a sewing class and we learned the basics. Seam-finishing, applying zippers, how to manipulate fabric (pleats and gathering to name a few), and putting together and altering patterns. This class has given me even more motivation to pursue a career in the fashion industry.
I keep changing my mind of my ultimate dream job, but who says I only have to have one! I want to experience all types of jobs dealing with fabric! Be it clothes or home decor, it all sounds so wonderful to me.
Here are my very first garments!
I really should be wearing pants with this tunic. If it was a little longer I would totally wear it out like this.
Hand-sewn embellishments! Didn't take too long... plus it was actually therapeutic.
I look forward to getting a machine soon, so I will continue practicing my new skill!
If anyone is interested in buying either of these pieces let me know! The skirt would fit a curvy lady with a 31" waist and a 40" hipline and the Tunic would fit in between a 38" to MAYBE 40" Bustline.
