Summer 2013

So it's been a long time since I've updated anything -- I have to admit to being busier than ever, but I'd like to at least try to keep track of things a little bit!

Over the summer I had the amazing opportunity to work for Marianne Korstyne at Krostyne Studio here in Pittsburgh. Marianne is an amazing draper/shop owner who also teaches as an adjunct professor at CMU for various costume production classes.  During my time at her studio we made leather corsets, a fat suit and costume to fit (trousers and a vest and coat), tyvec dance-wear, and 30s wedding gowns, to mention a few. I learned so much while there and improved on my sewing skills greatly. It was a wonderful experience!
