For Christmas I asked my mother for sewing classes. I know, I'm a total nerd. I mean, who asks for "school" for Christmas?! THIS GIRL! It's a program that is offered through our local college's "Workforce Training" courses. The class that I REALLY wanted was specific to tailoring, as it is getting closer to wedding season and I want to be ready with all the know-how on all the alterations I will be doing. Last year I kind of started doing alterations without really knowing what I was doing, but I learned as I went along and have become pro at it! The only thing is is that I don't know how to do all the fancy seams at the bottom of a bridal gown so I can't hem it for any of the brides. I can take that sucker in or let it out, no problem, but I can't hem it, sorry. Not really a thing a bride wants to hear. So, back to the class, in order to do the advanced class I have to complete the basic class. Some of the things are a little redundant, and it's a bit boring for now, but I'm excited because I am actually getting to learn all the proper terms for specific stitches. I know that they all have special names, but I just know them as the "Fold It Over One" or the "Curvy One." Very scientific, I know. I am however looking forward to learning more, especially with the advanced class. That one is going to be so much more challenging and I am looking forward to it.
