I’m ordering my coat lining, this week. Probably today, I didn’t get a chance to order it last week, got busy. And I have this thing now due to Amazon of expecting fast packages, so I tend not to order things at the end of the week because I want to receive it the week of the order.
I’m ordering from Vogue Fabrics, so I think I should still be able to get it this week.
I know childish but Amazon has spoiled me. Well that’s the update on the coat, I probably will cut out the bodice pattern pieces this evening and set it to the side. Still waiting on the Butterick pattern. The seller sent me a message this morning that it was returned to her because the label fell off. So I have to wait another week for that.
But that the only update I have about the coat
I’m debating if I want to give up blogging, on one hand I love having my own space in the world, but on the other hand I feel like its a lot of work and I wonder if I’m being effective. I thought about vlog, but haven’t decide on that one yet? Any thoughts on which one is better.
I’m also a member of sewing pattern review
and Sewing Portfolio
and I have my instagram
I wish that there was a way, that once I did my blog post, I can click a button, and my sewing review is sent to Sewing pattern review, and my photos are sent to Sewing portfolio but it doesn’t.
So I feel like I have all these different communities and you have to post separately on all of them.
But is it EFFECTIVE is my question?
I like sharing my sewing makes, and I want to learn new techniques, and document the process.
I don’t feel like I’m a tutorial type of blogger, and I feel like there are a million in one technique videos, I just want to share my makes, lol.
The thing with social media we don’t own those, and I guess technically I don’t own blogger, but its still my blog outside of social media, or rather the domain name lol…
So what do I do? Do I give up blogging, move to video blogging? Or just keep my Instagram, and post reviews on sewing pattern review or sewing portfolio
Questions I have with no answers….
Help a sista out, any advice would be appreciated.
Well that’s enough of blogging issues. Lets Talk Spring Patterns.
I’m really trying to cut down on patterns. As I’m learning my taste. I am accepting I don’t have to buy a pattern because its new. I did a pattern cleanse where I got rid of at least 250 patterns, unfortunately I think I have bought about 50 more, My phone says I have 469 patterns. The goal is to never own more than 500, and hopefully maybe get down to 350 possibly. I do need to let some patterns go because I know I will not make them EVER.
So the new Simplicity patterns its a couple I like
I love View A but I would need a belt to cinch my waist, I also wouldn’t mind A as a top for a jumpsuit.
I’m doing the RTW fast, and I need some new sports bras, so unless I make time to pick up some before the 31st I will need this pattern to make some.
I love this pattern because its simple, it has the raglan sleeves which looks nice on me, its plain, but can be dressed up or down. If I pick this one up, I would force myself to get rid of 10 patterns. To accept this one lol.
The patterns that was disappointing to me, was Mimi G patterns, please don’t stone me. But I felt like she is starting to repeat things. I love a lot of her independent patterns, she puts out, however they are pdf patterns, and I don’t have the resources to print them. And I took one of her patterns I did pick up to the printer to get printed, and they told me it would need two pages, it was like 18.00 dollars. I was like nope and I did print that one at my job.
I liked more of her older patterns for Simplicity, but I will say majority of them I have given away because I realize they weren’t my style. I do still plan on making Simplicity 1283 and the coat from Simplicity 8451. I also still have Simplicity 8392 and 8334 (all those snaps required for this one is one of the reason why it has set, I may give up on that one. I think the snaps will cost more than the fabric lol.
But I’m not feeling the direction her Simplicity patterns are going. I did see a video she did when she talked about the process for doing a pattern with Simplicity and how much in advance she has to work on it. But yea, not liking it.
I can’t draft patterns, not one bit, hence the reason why my winter coat will be a combination of two patterns …. lol so don’t my two cents.
