So I had a brief hiatus due to a family gathering in Lake Geneva. Had a great time, but became lax on my blogging.
However! That doesn’t mean I haven’t been moving. On Sunday I went to Vogue Fabrics in Evanston. Ann, my clothing construction teacher, met us there to walk through the fabrics and etiquette. I walked away with fabric and notions for all three projects in class -sticking to a navy/grey palette.
The designer room has fabrics that come from design houses – it’s inspirational to pick through them. For the first time, i started touching fabric imagining how I’d design with it
The rest of Sunday had me prepping my fabric. Truthfully, I never realized the fabric should be washed prior to sewing, but it makes sense in hindsight (wish I practiced that prior to some of my home projects) – the little things I’m learning in this class are invaluable.
Can’t wait to see the fabric my classmates picked! My guess is that at least one picked neon.
