For almost a year now I have been working at Gowns by Pamela, altering wedding dresses. This has been a great experience for me because I was able to learn how to work on an industrial machine, work on my sewing skills and meet some incredible people. I will miss all my brides and my lovely boss Lisa. :-)
Another exciting thing about this semester was I was an intern at Anthropologie. This was amazing. I mainly worked on the big holiday window display. Now I work on merchandising, visual displays, and just working close with all managers learning how the store runs and operates. In the pic. above, these are called "tie ons". Its crazy, adding this little match and sandpaper make the sale of these candles go way up. That's what I love about Anthropologie, EVERYTHING is so well thought out and done to interest the costume in buying more. Its like a big game.
More "tie Ons," these took about 5 hours to tie all these little ropes onto these candles.
Part of the holiday windows. Go to any Anthropologie and look for these big poofs. They were so fun to make. (not really) We used over 1,000 for our windows. :-)
Millinery class. A Little Pillbox hat I made.
A fun straw hat. I want to go to the Kentucky Derby to wear this one.
