Blogger Update!

So I realize that I’ve been the worst at posting blogs lately…

I’m challenging myself for the Christmas season. This will be some what of a pre-new years resolution that will continue until the next pre-new year.

For me, writing this in a blog makes it official. It makes me accountable to whoever reads this! Whoever you are, you are loved. You must truly care.

So this resolution is a bit of a two-parter. It’s an experiment that I’ve been planning for a long time now and just have not found the time. Finally, I realized that I will never “find the time” and that I should just make the time. That’s how life goes when you’re growing up, I guess.

So here it is:

PART ONE: Blog every day about what I am doing.

– This will include (but is not limited to) ONE (1) Photo. No matter how insignificant. I must document in picture form.

-ONE (1) Paragraph description. The only way to get better is to do it every day! (Practice makes perfect…said everyone’s mother ever).

PART TWO: (The hard part) Redo My Wardrobe

-This is gonna be hard.

-It’s also SO going to be worth it.

– First I’m going to have to do some research. Patterns, styles, classics, etc. I need to figure out exactly where I want my wardrobe to be, what I’m lacking, what I need to get rid of and what is going to last for longer than a season.

-Next I’m actually going to have to make (yes MAKE) each piece. Whether that’s by a pre-made pattern or by my own creation.

So there it is. You’ve read it. I’ve said it.

Tomorrow-It begins. 365 days of it. I will begin my planning tomorrow and post. With a picture because that’s what I’m making myself do! See you then!

Life Post!

Hello my friends. I apologize for being so slow to make a new post. Fortunately, it means that real life is actually getting busy! I have a project that I am so excited to share with everyone when it is complete. Normally I would share more about the process before I am finished but all I can really share is our inspirations and colour palette which I will share in a new post later this week! You can also be expecting a DIY very soon!!!

Did I mention I’m doing this project with my best friend Kali, who is amazing and has her own blog?! Check her out here. Seriously.

Anyways, this week I had been searching for a dress form and it occured to me to look on Kijiji…lo and behold I actually found one for $50! It’s blue and beautiful.

So thanks to the person who sold me this! You’re the bomb. SO other than dressformage, I’ve basically been drafting my patterns and trying to enjoy my summer before I go into full design mode. Our fashion show is on June 9th, so there really is no time to waste!

Anyways, that’s what I’ve been up to. Keep checking back here for my new DIY blog post (and video?!) to be coming very soon! What lovely projects have you been up to lately?

A Prologue

And so I begin a fresh. It has been a desire of mine to finally begin a blog on the things I love so much, however, life has gotten in the way. I plan to begin with many inspiration topics before I dive right into the sewing and the techniques used. I just love collaborating with other sewers on the web! So stay tuned! There is much more to come. 🙂

If you are just too impatient to wait for my next post, here are some other places you can find me!
