I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here, even if my posting has slowed down lately. Real life has been getting in the way. But don't worry, this has been good real life things.
First of all, I've enroled in a fashion design course and my first class was last Monday. I'm so excited! The first thing we are learning is how to draft master patterns, starting with a skirt. I am very excited to learn how to design clothing. Perhaps an esty store is in the works!
Second, I got a last minute invitation to volunteer at Alberta Fashion Week. I will be volunteering at the front of house, so if you decide to come to the shows, make sure to say hello. While I enjoy working backstage, this way I can check out all the street fashion as it comes in the door!
Finally, my weekend plans (which I will try to photograph, as I want to share more of what I do on this blog). This morning (no work today) I need to go shopping for my last minute supplies for my design course (muslin etc.). Then this afternoon and evening I am going to Red Deer to a horse sale with my parents. No plans on buying anything though, I need to saw for a trip next summer.
Tomarrow I am in a dressform making course. I'll be making a dressform that is exactly my shape (cool and a little scary). While I love Matilda (seen here), I wanted a new one because a. Matilda can't actually move enough to be my measurements and b. she is not mine in the first place. I will post up the results here Saturday night or Sunday.
Sunday, back to work. But I may be volunteering helping set up the space for ABFW Saturday and Sunday afternoon/evening.
Have a good weekend everyone!
