Back to School & Fall Sewing Plans

I’m back to school today!! I’m back to my PhD classes, but I’m also starting some exciting new classes: I’ve been admitted in a professional patternmaking programme at a specialised school! I’ll have to work hard this year, because I’ll have to make progresses with my PhD and also study the patternmaking course, but I’m super excited!! The course lasts two years and they’ll teach us about digital patternmaking, industrial sewing techniques, design theory, fashion history… and in the end we’ll have to do an internship! Is La Perla accepting interns, by the way? 😛

So, before I’m all snowed under with work, I’m going to share with you my sewing plans for this fall. Will I be able to accomplish them? We’ll see… 😉

My new favourite skirt: the Veronika Skirt

We’re having a really hot summer here in Barcelona, so hot that I gave up wearing jeans about a month ago. And I absolutely love my jeans, btw, but the only things that I’m wearing this summer are dresses and skirts. The problem was that I didn’t have many skirts at the beginning of the summer, so I went to the fabric store and I pretty much bought any lightweight fabric they had, and started transforming them into skirts. I’ve made three so far, and a dress. And maybe I’ll blog about them some day. But today is about sharing with you my greatest skirt-related discovery: the Veronika Skirt pattern, by Megan Nielsen! *applause*
