Online learningPosted: March 11, 2012
I have sewn for a very long time. I have been taught all sorts of things by all sorts of people. I even earned an advanced City and Guilds Fashion qualification. But I have never done an online sewing course.BUT that is about to change!
In my inbox today there was a message from Threads relating to a couture dress course being taught by Susan Khalje on Craftsys site. I have long admired her contributions to Threads magazine and numerous bloggers from the US speak very highly of her classes so I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn from someone I admire in a format I have not tried yet.
The dress I will be making is from a Vogue pattern provided. Sadly I didn’t take a note of the pattern number and I can’t get back to find it at the moment – but it looks like the sort of pattern that could be adapted to suit just about any age or size. Could be fun. I will start looking through the lessons until the pattern arrives but once it does I will keep you posted.
Back to school Kim! (Off to sharpen my pencils and scissors)
Edit: The dress is this one, Vogue 8648:
I have made a start looking at the lessons, and did a little stash diving to see what might be good to use. Can’t wait for the pattern to arrive now.
