Greetings cyber friends, for the last two weeks I have been a busy little bee. I am newly a freelancer, or what I like to refer to as a hustler.
I have a great freelance gig in the meatpacking district as an assistant fashion designer(cut and sew mostly) with some wonderful ladies and one man.
Also, have somehow managed to trick someone into thinking I am a patternmaker and seamstress. A feat I never thought I could/would accomplish. I just never had the confidence in my skills to man up to making things for someone else, I always found the idea overwhelming.
Now having found the courage I patterned and made 2 muslins and the first sample in real fabric for a size 6.
Below is a sneak peak at the straps.
I am excited about this new accomplishment because it means my college education wasn't a complete waste, and I think the first sample looks pretty darn amazing!
Plus, I met the lovely designer on the streets of midtown when she liked my skirt and wanted a pic, I said ok but dont rip me off it's my design...a very nyc tale...
Back to sewing, I have to start cutting the second real fabric sample...I need to finish it today.
