School Stuff

I don't know if any of you reading this went to fashion school or something similar. For those who didn't but are somewhat interested, I have a small update on what I've been doing there.
Today my 3rd week at ESMOD International Fashion School ended (wow, 3 weeks already...). We have to main subjects: Stylism and Modelism. Stylism is everything centered around drawing and designing, while Modelism is basically pattern making and sewing.
In Stylism were doing lots of "find your own creativity" stuff right now, but will soon start learning how to properly draw figurines and such.
In Modelism we mainly did arts and crafts things to practice precision work (and patience!). For example, we did origami for a day and then made these:

I kind of like the little paper dresses I made :) I made 8 in total, these are just my favourites.

Then this week, we made stuffed cosmetics' bottles :D They are made out of fabric and embroidered and then stuffed and should look as similar to the original as possible. I LOVE the one I made, it's soooo cute!

Sorry that the picture isn't that great, I only had my iPhone to quickly snap a picture with :)
And then today we made our first (sort of) pattern! It was only two circles, which were then sewn together to end up looking something like this (click to view bigger! Due to my blog layout I couldnt make it any larger):

It's not something I would usually wear but I actually really like the idea and it turned out looking really good. It doesn't matter though, because we didn't have to hand it in (as most of my classmates can't sew yet and mine was one of maybe 5 out of 30 that were both finished AND wearable).
Do you like it? I'm collecting ideas for an etsy-store I want to start soon and this might be something I could include. What do you think?
