I'm reading: BusybeeTweet this!

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been busy making patterns and
samples of my designs. Will be updating more on that later... For now,
all I have to report is that in the past couple days I finally got fed
up with trying to find a pattern maker that I took out some books and
taught myself a refresher course, bought supplies and dove right into
it and of course made really good soy lattes to keep me sane. I chose
to do this because I am obsessed with clothes fitting correctly and
perfectly. Guess that's just my tailor genes coming out. Hehe. Anyway,
I want to learn the right way. Sure, i could just hire people to make
them for me and sew them for me but i feel like that wouldnt be true
(to myself) to say I am a designer if i didnt do any of the work/
production myself. I want to know every possible trick of the trade.
And how much more special is each garment when it is handmade & custom
fitted to you perfectly?!
I'll keep you posted how it goes. In the meantime, I encourage you to
take the time out to pick up a hobby you haven't done in a while.
Whether its painting, playing music, taking photographs or jump
roping? (I used to be pretty good at double dutch...haha)
Have fun!
Xx Alice
