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!
Very useful information. Thank you for sharing it. Thanks
I’m not a novice seamstress and only need to consult the instructions if it’s something…
Thanks, I didn’t know about the new Italian site and the free download patterns there. …
