Have You Ever Wondered About The Design Academy? QTπ Doll Clothing Shares Her Thoughts!
When did you decided to take the course and what lead you to it?
"I had wanted to take the course before it was even being offered again. I had seen and heard and seen the difference it had made it the quality of work in previous Design Academy participants."
"The different layers of designs that Cinnamon outlines throughout the course really all come to gather at the end and allows you to make designs that are not just doll clothes, but real people clothes that fit dolls."
"I gained so much from the course, but some of the more memorable things I gained were; a whole new network of friends with the same passions and a tremendous amount knowledge, the confidence I was lacking in myself as a designer and the unbelievable support of Cinnamon and her team(which you can get without the course)."
"I think when you are learning to sew or design take chances and jump in feet first. Not every design works out perfectly, but you definitely learn something from every design. I think the design Academy is a great course to take from beginner to even a professional seamstress. I have been sewing for 20 years and what I learned was invaluable."
"I am proudly a Canadian."
It is important to know that the course is not intended to teach you about pattern design, but it is where I was inspired to make patterns. Making my final project piece is where I came up with my first pattern design.
