Hello everyone! A lot has been happening in this past week. I have gotten new patterns, and my business is booming! First off I want to let you know about the new patterns that I have gotten! The vastness that the McCall’s company is, it just had a HUGE sale on all of their clearance and out-of-print patterns. McCalls’ owns Vogue patterns, Butterick patterns, Kwick Sew patterns, and McCall’s patterns.
I had to get some patterns for Trey. I’m really excited for the two above!
This pattern I will be trying later on tonight! We will see how it all turns out!
I realized that I only really had one skirt and blazer pattern so I got some more!
Lately I have had a problem with pants so I figured that I would just make them myself instead.
Finally, a dress pattern because why not! What I didn’t realize about this pattern until I received it, was that it is for knits! This may just turn into my new favorite dress pattern.
I have been doing a lot of online free pattern shopping through others blogs and what not and have found some promising patterns. Again I have not had the chance to really try them out yet but here is the list of patterns that I printed out and will try in the near future. True, some of these are tutorials but it is worth a shot!
Have any of you tried these out?! If so let me know!
LASTLY!! I said earlier that my business is booming! I am taking a small business management class and am really learning a lot! 😀 I have finished my small business plan, and little things along the way that I can start to implement now to make sure that my clients are happy with their specialized or tailored clothing. Some of the things include my business cards, branding, and thank-you cards, OHH AND CLOTHING TAGS!
So far just this week, I have added 5 new clients who were referred to me through people in my classes! I really didn’t think that people in class actually listened to you when you talked. But I am really happy!
