Next Up: Tailoring
You know when you watch episodes of Project Runway and Nina Garcia comments on what excellent tailoring skills that a specific contestant possesses because they nailed a stellar blazer? Well, that's going to be this time next week. My Fall class this semester is Tailoring... and I have heard that we will create a blazer, in and out. I will be 100% perfectly honest with you that I am severely scared. I have quickly realized that I am more a "draper" if you will. I like to play around with fabric on the form and move and shake and all that jazz. I think this is one reason why I disliked pattern drafting. While I learned a lot, I felt like it was too rigid for my creative juices. In any event, this Fall should prove to be interesting and I will surely keep you all updated on my progress or my whining, either or. I think that I will end up with a somewhat wearable blazer or a somewhat frustrating complex in regard to my abilities. Let's see how the cookie crumbles.
