Whee! I had a good day today! Not only did I slam an entire project together that I am tickled pink about, but my black velveteen fabric arrived from UPS. Finally! And on top of that, I got a Folkwear pattern in the mail for a Poiret Opera cloak, which I will be using as inspiration for my own...
I am so excited!! Now I have a whole slew of projects to get done, and that makes me feel really good.
I still haven't sold anything yet (and that really bums me out, but I can't wallow in those thoughts for long), but I am confident that these new items will be different and fun. I look forward to doing some velvet painting on those opera cloaks, and seeing if they attract much attention. I'm also going to dive into a new series of coats that aren't made out of velour, so they'll be infinitely lighter and more wearable.
But tonight, just as a preview, I'm posting pics of the project I slammed together last night and today. A really nice piece that's deceptively warm... A vest that my partner named "Gay Apparel", so I think that'll be this particular festive holiday-wear series of clothes... Kinda Christmas/Mardi Gras/Circus, I think! I really dig the standing collar. It'll be up on Etsy and Artfire soon!
Until next time--Live life with Relish!
