Starting My Spring Collection

   Now that my final semester has almost begun (only 5 days away) I'm attempting to finalize my outfits for my first every spring collection. Mind you I've been thinking about my designs for awhile now and though there's always little tweaks happening here and there I think I can finally say I've narrowed my designs down to the general gist of my future collection. Obviously still very vage as I know there will be many more changes as the year progresses.

   My goal is to have all the sketches and flats done before school starts up and then if I get the go ahead from my teacher I'll start pattern drafting and draping within the next few weeks.


   I'm so excited yet so nervous too because I really have no idea what to expect, how long this will take me and mostly what the end result will be. I'm sort of relieved though that this first collection won't be for sale as I only bough enough fabric for individual outfit. This way I won't feel pressured to make everything perfect. That's why I'm in school, to learn and thankfully I don't have to be perfect, well not yet at least.

Come this fall though...hold on to your hats because I'll hopefully have my first fall collection ready for sale!! Super pumped!

   Anyways hope you're having a great Wednesday morning!

Well, first of all -- I'm so glad that one of my new blog friends is learning fashion design, because I think it's so fascinating and would have loved to do it myself, but I just don't have the skill. So I'll learn vicariously through you! haha :)
Also, aren't you totally stoked that this is your last semester?! I'm also starting my last semester, and cannot wait to be done! Yay!
Please post pics of what you design! I'm so interested to see it! Happy New Year!

Thanks everyone for such the positive feed back! It's still nerve racking because drawing something on paper is very different than actually sewing the garment itself but I'm pretty excited to get started.
