It's Official!

not even two weeks after sending off my applications for O'More College of Design and i get a call that i have been accepted!!  i am sooooo excited!!  since i taught myself to sew this past september, sewing has become my favorite hobby...and i realize that i am actually good great at it.  so, this is what led me to apply to a design school and persue a degree in fashion design.  can't wait for classes to start in august so i can get one step closer to becoming a awesome clothing maker!

Goin' Retro

i decided it was time for a new dress, so i went to my fave pattern...Simplicity 3833.  i was in Hancock Fabrics browsing one day and this patterned cotton caught my eye!  the pattern has a unique retro vibe to it, and i immediately envisioned it on this dress and knew i had to get it.  i also bought some solid blue cotton for the front bodice b/c i wanted the dress to be two-toned.  i love this dress and it turned out better than i expected!

another project i worked on this week was a sewing sample.  now that i have discovered my new found love, and wonderful talent, in sewing i decided to apply to O'More College of Design in Franklin, TN to get a bachelors in fashion design!  to finish up the application process i have to submit a sewing sample to the fashion design dept.  this sewing sample consisted of sewing eight 9"x4" fabric pieces together and then sewing on bias tape.  easy enough, since those are all things i've done before!  hopefully all my hard work pays off and i'll be able to proclaim myself as a student at OCD! *it's also funny the school's initials are OCD, b/c that kind of describes me. hehe!*
