Fashion Design

I’m sew excited! (Ha! Did I really write that?). I just registered for a continuing education class in Fashion Design at OTIS College of Art and Design. I signed up for Introduction to Apparel Construction Techniques. And, I don’t even sew clothes :-). The class is held at California Market Center, which is in the heart of LA’s Fashion District and covers an entire city block.

Have I mentioned that I love “school shopping”? Here’s a copy of my class supply list:

  • Five yards muslin
  • 2″ x 18″ see-through ruler
  • scissors
  • tape measure
  • industrial single-needle foot
  • bobbin and bobbin case
  • needles
  • Scotch tape
  • French curve
  • notcher
  • cone of colored thread
  • pins
  • tracing wheel
  • seam ripper
  • flathead(standard) screwdriver
  • Sharpie marker
  • #2 pencil
  • note-taking materials

I figured I probably will learn some fun new things which will be useful for quilting- or who knows, maybe I’ll expand my reperatoire.

When I was at Sewing Summit I met Gretchen of Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing and was amazed at the clothing she sews. She’s adorable.

I also started watching Project Runway the other night (I know, I’m a little bit behind…) and you never know, maybe I’ll be doctor-turned-fashion-designer…

ps. If you’re reading this post in a “reader”, please head over to my blog and let me know your thoughts on my new layout. I would love to have feedback on the design and also any quirks that show up in your browser. I’m finding out that it doesn’t show up the same for everyone.
