School’s out for the summer! Thursday’s Textiles test was my last test, and I’m feeling pretty good about my grade there. Wednesday I had two finals: Designer Techniques and Costume Construction. I think I did just fine in the Costume Construction class, though I missed some silly things on the very easy 50 question multiple choice test. *sigh* In Designer Techniques I had already turned in my final, the grey skirt I still have not got around to photographing, so I polished off a UFO (UnFinished Object) from last year’s Summer Essentials Challenge (which is going on again this year! Check it out!). No picture of that, either.
I did take a picture of Monday’s Flat Pattern final project. I drafted it myself:
It’s bright, it’s yellow, and it has awesome fabric covered buttons! The fabric on the buttons was also used on the undercollar and back neck facing. It went together super-easy, which generally means that I did the pattern-work correctly. Advanced Pattern Drafting is being offered next semester, and I think I’m going to take that instead of Draping, which is offered more regularly.
Looking forward to hanging out a few weeks until summer school starts. I plan to spend time with the horses, and maybe starting a few other projects I’ve been thinking about doing, like embellishing something for this week’s Sew Weekly Theme: Embellish This.
And just so I don’t forget to share, check out all of the cool people who have enough self-made items to participate in the Me-Made June Challenge!
