I had such a good time at the sewing course last year, that I decided to enroll in the first one of this year as well. I’ve set out a few aims for myself:
- If they still have the black mesh, I want to make a midi length A-line dress for myself. I will use the serger for this, probably using beads at the shoulder.
- Design and make a pair of trousers for myself. These are somewhat similar to the pant I made last summer, but this one will be shorter and without the side pockets.
- Experiment more with applique and stitching to create my own, elaborate textiles. This was introduced to us in the previous course showing amazing examples made by the tutors: I’d like to be able to make something as elaborate. I think I could use such textiles to make bags.
Update: I made the dress! I am considering cutting up the panels that make up the shoulder straps as they are now single pieces with two ‘flaps’ each, and I think I want each piece to become two pieces with one ‘flap’ each, so I might do this in the next couple of weeks. However, this won’t change the overall shape/look of the dress. Note that this is a mesh dress. In the photo, I am wearing the dress over black tights and a spaghetti-strap top:
