I want to apologize for the delay of my first pattern! Things are taking much longer than I expected. It’s very important to me that you get the best quality product possible, so I’m working hard to make sure everything is just so.
In my sewing projects, I talk a lot about making better quality clothing, filling my wardrobe with beautiful, well-fitted clothing, and that we’re worth it – so I’m applying the same theory to my patterns as well.
Some of the things I’ve learned so far:
- Coming up with a cool idea is only a small part of it! That’s the easy part, I have an endless supply of design ideas and am always thinking up something new. It’s everything else, from writing the instructions to figuring out fabric requirements to choosing paper, that’s what takes the time!
- Time management is key. When you’re starting something in your spare time, while juggling work and other commitments, every hour is so valuable!
- And yet, don’t cut corners! Since this is my first pattern, it’s important to make a great first impression. It has to be good, or you won’t come back for more!
So thank you for being so patient and understanding! I appreciate it very much. It looks like the launch date will be closer to mid-to-late November rather than the end of October as I iron out a few more details. Once I have a final date I will let you all know!
