[sew] The first projects from school

So trough the busy learning and messing up and re-trying s of school, I managed to spit out a few "garments" and numerous numerous patterns (many of which will never blossom into anything at all. just stuck, on paper).

Voici my skirt. Ive also made a plum coloured variation of it, this is just the muslin. May not seem like much, but its my first pattern ever!

(in need of ironing)

and I finished my blouse. Still feel a little nautious every time I look at the tropical punch fabric. The school gave me 5meters worth at the begining of the semester. Had to use it for something, non?


[people] NorwegianWood S/2011

Another photoshoot, this time for Norwegian Wood's Spring 2011 collection :)

Of course I'd love to give a sneak peak at the garments, but I can't. Designer's rules!

Instead, here are a few shots of what-we-crossed-through-to-get-to-the-location-we-ended-up-not-really-using. Cool place nonetheless:

"What? is that a Ninja Turtle snowboard?" you say

oh yes, yes it is.

[sew] sewing helper and antibiotics

School is a pain in the ass. Well more a pain in the back. Actually the back pain turned out to be something else, for which I got a 1 week perscription. Those pills are freakin' Huge! I can barely swallow an advil normally, these were quite intimidating in the begining. oh - but I digress.

So school. After sucking away all my money for tuition, and all the materials and books etc, I'm feeling pretty broke. Oh but don't worry, if I can't afford clothes I now can sew up a few rags. With princess seams and blind hems, it will look so much more "expensive".

The classes are good, I do feel I'm learning quite a lot. However, in a very very short amount of time (due to it being an intensive program). It's beaucoup of work, and it builds up, and overwhealming at times.

Spending my upcoming sunday at school, sewing and drafting. :|

But, on to happier stuff!
