This was my second lesson we were learning how to do zips and cuffs. From our last lesson we were told to bring 10" zips and I got a great deal of five for a £1 on Ebay. She done a demonstration first to show everyone how to do it and It was completely confusing and as soon as she finished I completely forgot everything. I still had a go and tried so I done section by section and asking if I needed help. It took me about half an hour to complete one then I was told to do another one so I got the hang of it, The next one I got the idea of it and was much easier and was able to complete it in ten minutes. After that I was taught how to do cuffs. This process was quite simple but I did do it wrong by sewing it to close to the edge so when I turned it inside out it had wholes in the corners but it was easy to fix.
As I am a Fine Art student from Liverpool I like to experiment with many things and Eco Fashion is one of my experimentation I exploring at the moment but still carrying on with my other social theme's. I got this idea to explore Eco Fashion because I am starting a beginners sewing course in September to learn how to use my sewing machine, I have learned the basics when I was in school and college and when it comes to using my own sewing machine it turns into rocket science, so this course will be really helpful. Also because my current studio practice in university is about the poverty driven side of Liverpool etc, council estates. So I put both of them together and came up with Eco Fashion as a theme. I researched a bit about Eco Fashion and looked designers and they really inspired me. at the moment I am only doing drawings of my ideas because I don't think it is an appropriate theme for my studio practice but is something I want to explore in my spare time.
