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.
I made the petticoat as well. Next was the finished costume . Front View, and back view
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.
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.
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.
