Since it is a sewing community, I was wondering if someone can have some advice. I am looking into taking Dressmaking and Design course at Penn Foster Career School. I have been getting tips and techniques from all over the place. I have books, magazines, and what seems like millions of links to various blogs and websites. I was born in Russia and learned how to sew by watching my mom and older sister, but never had any professional training. I have been looking into couture projects and the more resources I find, the more worried I grow that my sewing experience lacks some serious foundation. I want to complete this course and get a diploma in order to feel confident and organize my skills so later I can add to it by learning more in depth techniques. And who knows, maybe I can even earn some income. Does anyone know anything about this school? Perhaps, taken this course?
Thank you for any info in advance!
