Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Bag Making
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 - Apr. 27, 2018
Unfortunately, today I felt sick and did not attend school.
This morning in Fashion Design, I went into class and we all had a lovely discussion about Lineapelle and the Fashion industry! I then showed Veronica my designs, and she showed me how I can improve my drawing skills for next week. The main tip is always practice – “practice makes perfect!”
Today I spent all day working on my shoulder bag/clutch. After having glued, I stitched both zipper pieces together, creating a circle. Then after having glued the two sides with the pockets, I stitched those pieces together with the zipper piece.
Today I was hand stitching all day! I finished my first small leather good from last week, and started the second bag we are all making. The second bag is a shoulder bag, so it is much larger and has a chain strap attached to it.
Today I spent all morning working independently on Bag Design, and all afternoon working independently on Bag Making! Later in the evening, I happily went to Trattoria 13 Gobbi, a wonderful restaurant in Florence with the best tomato sauce on rigatoni in the city!
