Sorry for my complete lack of posting last week – I was on holiday, got completely lazy and I really wasn’t wearing anything worth taking a photo of any way. I know I haven’t replied to any comments lately and I haven’t forgotten about those two lovely ladies who tagged me with memes, I hope I’ll get round to doing them this week.
While I was being lazy, I did manage to get some sewing for the shop done before my sewing machine went all crazy again with the tension for the third time!! I’m wondering about whether I need to just bite the bullet and buy a new one, my only problem with this solution is that I’ve only had my machine for about three years. I did manage to cut out and over lock (serge) about 8 skirts though after my machine went back to be fixed and they are now hanging over Madeline (my dress form) waiting to be sewn together.
I have oodles of ideas for the shop and really just want to get started sewing, but can’t due to my silly machine! The end of May can’t come soon enough as far as I am concerned, I am very excited about opening the shop, even though I have a ton of work to do and lots of things to organise.
I’ll post the picture of my prototype skirt next week and hopefully by then I’ll have some questions to ask you all. I have a marketing degree and its kicking in with the need to define my target audience and figure out what they really want which means asking you a bunch of questions about the product I’ll be producing. So if you do want to help me out with a little market research please just flick me an email firstname.lastname@example.org, it won’t take long and will be of much use to me and my little fledgling shop.
The dress I’m wearing is a beautiful vintage one. It’s made of wool and is as warm as can be, and it has fluttery sleeves – lovely!
