& we are finally here, the last Parson x Teen Vogue related blog post.

This has been such a bitter sweet experience. I am so happy with all of the knowledge I have gained since starting this course – it has showed me which areas I need to drastically improve on [This post will highlight one of those skills] but it also enlightened me with things I didn’t know at all, and even helped me gain a better understanding of other aspects of the fashion industry.

I totally recommend this course for anyone who wants a basic, overall education on what the fashion industry consists off. It has opened my eyes to a lot.

Today’s post is all about the bag I designed back in the first course. I kind of went all out and purchased real leather, in the hopes of really being able to rock this bag for years to come. After cutting out the pattern, something told me to double check if leather needed a specific needle in order to be sewn together. Turned out, I was right. Leather is a lot thicker compared to other fabrics, so a basic needle wouldn’t be able to survive the stitching. For that reason, I won’t be able to give an exact pricing for the supplies, labor, nor the entire retail cost. I simply placed the pattern together to show what it would essentially look like. With the price of the fabric alone, I wanted to deepen my understanding of how to construct a leather bag to make sure this one turned out as great as possible.

Cost of the Leather: $55

Cost of Floral Fabric: $2/Yard

 

With the coming weeks, I do plan to treat myself this Christmas season by self hosting this blog and really committing the time this blog – and my passion – deserves. I have so many ideas and themes for future posts – 2017 is going to be a big year for this blog.

I’ll catch you later in another post real soon, and as always, sending all of my love your way!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
