After earning a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice, as well as a Masters degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs (both from Buffalo State College), I have decided to take my talents back to Buffalo State and further my education within the Fashion and Textile Technology department. This semester I will be learning about the fundamentals of apparel construction. This course outlines the basic beginning techniques of apparel construction using commercially available patterns and industrial sewing machines. It also introduces measuring techniques, fabric selection, fit and alterations.
This past summer, I started tailoring some of my own clothes, in order to save some money on tailoring bills, seen here and here. However, after scouring the internet for more tutorial videos, I realized that I learned everything that was available online. Therefore, taking a course and building a relationship with a professor was my next best option. Especially since the actual course would be free of charge, its just one of the perks of working at a college.
