Wow, May has just flown by! The past weekend has been busy, busy, busy. The “Plum” Blouse is coming along and will be headed into testing the second week of June. I have been working out a couple of last minute tweaks and working on the instructions/illustrations over the weekend. It feels good to be back at the sewing machine and getting a few things done. My WIPs are really piling up, but June is going to be my month of tackling them, I hope.
Other things that are going on in the studio include new summer patterns. My mom is going to be busy helping me sew up samples (I hope!), so I can focus on getting more patterns out over the next couple of months. I also am working on a small swim collection of patterns that I am super stoked about. They are loosely based off the swimsuits I designed for my very first fashion show way back in college! Swimwear was one of the very first things that I designed and sewed up after only being in fashion school for 4 months or so… and I really didn’t know how to sew!? Call me crazy, but I have always loved a good swimsuit 🙂
It’s also the last day to grab a copy of the “Mirabel” robe on sale while it’s the pattern of the month and tomorrow I will be announcing the June Pattern of the Month which happens to be one of the patterns that gets quite a bit of rotation in my summer wardrobe. Alright back to work I go, have a fantastic Tuesday!
