2017 My Year in Review

Hi there,

I have been very absent this year on the blog  Sorry, my course and work meant there was next to no  time for selfish sewing.

I have been sewing up a storm at work I am working at a dressmaking and alteration business as well as doing my course at TA

This year I completed Stage 1 of the “Diploma of Live production and technical services” Costume. Which in a nutshell is the first year of my 2 year course. I have also completed a Certificate 3 in Millinery, so I have lots of creations to show for my year.

The first creations were the corsetry needed for an 18th Century women’s garment.

A classical  Tutu is the next costume I had to complete. My first try at this type of costume ,lets just say  that I found the netting to be a whole other experience as a very tactile person I  didn’t enjoy using it though it is essential.

The next costume was a 50’s dress.

I drafted the pattern and made it to fit me to wear to a party.IMG_4328a

The next completed costume was a harlequin to go with the lady.

I made the costume to fit my husband. I made the mask in latex and the hat in my millinery class.7518833248_IMG_3697

There were other under garments made and the start of an Edwardian walking suit.

My millinery makes were in all types of materials and was an incredibly interesting course.

So that’s  my round-up for 2017. A very productive and busy year but hopefully next year will be more of a year to make time  for myself.

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂
