I know it has been rather a long time since my last post and I have missed you all dearly. What has been happening since my last post? Well, to tell the truth, a lot. So much to report on and I don't know where to begin. As they say, if you are not sure where to begin, always start from the beginning.
The Costume Night @ TAFE
Recently I have attended the Costume Design Night at the prestigious TAFE College here in Sydney. For those readers that are not from Australia, TAFE stands for Technical Adult Further Education. The TAFE in Ultimo (Sydney) is a well known and respected fashion education and training provider and has produced some of the well known Australian Designers such as Alex Perry. They offer a wide variety of courses outside of the Fashion field. The training gained in this institute is valuable and industry relevant.
I am not sure if I have mentioned this before but at I am studying the Certificate IV in the Applied Fashion and Design Technology. I am studying this course part time (2 nights a week) and totally love it. I am in the first year, and so far it has been an enjoyable and a learning journey. Please don't quote me on this but I think the course goes for two and half years if you are studying it part time.

Recent Sewing Project
Have I done any sewing since my last post? Well, I am pleased to advise that I have sewn pair of pants which I absolutely love, in 6 hours. This is a record time for me when it comes to sewing pants. Really proud of it!!! Just to put things into perspective; I remember my first pair of pants took something like 2 weeks (please don't judge). You would have seen my previous post with me in orange pair of pants. Well, the orange pants took about 2 weeks to complete.
