www.makeitindesign.com/winter-school) Winter School 2018 is my structure I need to create and finish something. This week's brief was Blooms-colorful bold, and go wild. I thought immediately of the artist Peter Max. And I love color so for me, this week's brief was perfect. Here is my result. I still find the moving and overlap and how a pattern works a little intimidating. How did one do this without Adobe?

|All white tutu framed in a Paris window|
All white tutu with 9 layers of tulle, crystals, feathers, and all other kinds of frou frou and fluff! It takes me about a week working all day. Some of this of course is errors that need to be ripped out and redone. Sewing is one of these things that I am determined to succeed at! One day I started counting my errors in the first part of the morning. I hit 18. Not a good day. But when the results turn out how I imagined, it makes it all worth it!

I managed to complete a tutu this past week and probably more proud then I should be. The details, terminology and desire to create something as beautiful as those I've seen seemed insurmountable. But I am ready for another. Of course my favorite part was creating the design of the embellishments.

I recently participated in a class on how to make a tutu. It is much much harder than I thought. I took the course in London at www.theshoemakingschool.co.uk In two days we were able to construct a tutu and leave with all its ruffles in place. I for one was always behind and needed a lot of help. The layers and sewing and construction just needed more thinking on my part and 2 days wasn't enough for me. I am continuing on my tutu making education by finding other instructions and few and far between Youtube videos. My goal is to create beautiful one of a kind ballet costumes here in France.
