|My first evening bag project|
First of all, we finally concluded our Bag Making 1 and for our last two projects we created a drawstring bag and an evening bag.

I don't know about you but my drawstring bag kinda reminds me of Heidi Klum's button bag in Project Runway. Don't you agree?

By the way I also resigned from my day job to focus on my studies. Here's what I wore on my last day at work.

Basically I am simply living off of my savings so I am eliminating several unnecessary expenses... but this vintage Dior is too good of a deal to ignore.

Really worth every penny.
I also learned how how to a pattern for tank tops from our Menswear class. So as a very eager student, I decided to manipulate the pattern a little and created my version of a tank top using a very lightweight fabric. I just want to make something that I can wear or what I consider as real size. This is also the first dress that I have ever sewn.

of this print as the cuttings.

After the tank top, I tried to create some bags even after our class ended. I made a small bag as a Christmas ornament for our school's Christmas tree. It took me 2 nights doing the embellishments on this project and I am quite satisfied with the results.

As I was rummaging through my supplies, I saw a small piece of fabric. Instead of throwing it away, I decided to play with the evening bag pattern and just have some fun with it. Here's the result of that experiment.

And finally last night I got bored and I just wanted to play around with some fabric. So I made a dress! Something that I am wearing today at school.
So those are the things that I was able to finish when I was not posting any new entries. I'm proud to say that I made two pieces of clothing pre-Sewing class just to diagnostic test for myself. I'm so excited creating more things in the future. Don't worry I will do a weekly post from here on.
I hope you will keep on reading my posts. Until next time loves!
Au revoir for now!
