For the last month or so I have been taking a dressmaking class at RMIT, it’s been a great course and I have really enjoyed learning new skills.
My favourite part of the class would have to be using the industrial sewing machines, overlockers and irons…lots of fun and lots of power!
We were told to purchase a skirt pattern and a quilting cotton. Armed with these details I popped into Tessuti and picked up some beautiful charcoal linen…because one cannot go to Tessuti and walk out with quilting cotton, too many beautiful fabrics on offer!!
First class in, I quickly realised why we were told to purchase cotton. To say sewing with linen is tricky for a beginner is an understatment. I persevered though and I am glad I did because I am pretty happy with the finished product.
