Teen Sewing at Cañada College

So my school, Cañada College, has a summer Teen Sewing class. Tuition if free to those still enrolled in high school, and it's a great opportunity for anyone who has wanted to learn to sew but doesn't have relatives or friends that know how, and even if you already know some basics about sewing there is still a lot to learn and gain from this class! It's Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:10 to 4:00 pm, June 21st through July 28th.

There are also some great classes this summer that I will be taking as well that I mentioned last post. Along with the Basic Serging, Beginning Teen Sewing, and Fashion Entrepreneurship classes, there is Beginning Clothing Construction (even experienced sewers loved this class, because they still learned a lot!), and a class called Copying Ready-To-Wear. Copying ready to wear is where you already have basic sewing skills and you are taught how to make a pattern of your favorite store bought article of clothing. The teacher, Lynda Maynard, also helps you create the pattern so it's better fitting for your specific figure if at all possible. From that pattern you can make it over and over again in whatever fabrics, colors, and weather styles you want! 100% valuable!

I hope you guys don't get tired of my talking up my school this much because honestly, it's AWESOME, and not enough people know about it.

I am a terrible Blogger

I barely ever post now! I've finished with school and had about a week off now, and I have missed having free time. I did in fact sew a dress for May, but it was my sister's celery dress that was truly supposed to be finished by march... I am so lazy. I've got quite a few dresses and garments planned for this summer, I wonder which ones I'll actually get to! I've already started working on a Cape for winter. It's going to be adorable!

I've also planned to get a head start on the Halloween costumes that my friends and I will be wearing this year since they are all going to be custom drafted, made, and fitted for each one of us... and that's kind of a lot of work for such a lazy person.

we will be delighting San Jose with Disney Twisted Princesses!

I will be Ariel,
Susan will be Jessie the cowgirl,
and our third friend will be Alice.

it's going to bloody, sexy fun.

this summer at Cañada I am excited to be taking a Fashion Entrepreneurship class! This will help me learn the ways to make myself a better business woman in the fashion world! I will also be taking a basic serger class because as it turns out I don't know how to work my serger all that well. ahahahaha.

Here's to summer vacation, even if the weather says fall!
(i'll be honest, it's just like my old home town without the fog!)
