156: What’s next? #pfHappyEnding
Jenny: Finished my block and am moving on to my first custom skirt design – but testing things out first in miniature by printing photos of my block & using them to design.
Tauko Magazine also has put out a call for submissions. I’ll submitted a couple designs & then crossing my fingers. 🙂
Beverly: Wedding dress!!!! Finished – details about that
Cashmerette’s club pattern for a fitted dress block, the Wyman sloper. Access to all past patterns with a membership at $13/mo.
What’s next for us? We’ll have some free time, and some stress removed from our lives (because creating on a schedule is usually stressful, right?).
- Taking classes: Top Skills, some couture handsewing classes
- Offering group sewing classes: I’m going to offer a group sewing things locally on a very small scale just for fun.
- New podcast: Insewmniacs – with my daughter who also sews too much, and never sleeps.
- Retirement dreaming
My sewing has really slowed down since I started taking Brooks Ann Camper’s Skirt Skills class – but that’s wrapping up now, with my first skirt made from my custom pattern being sewn up now. I think I’m going to play around with taking more time to focus on high quality, well fitted garments (just skirts, until I sign up for Top Skills next month) with lovely guts. Beverly has been inspiring for sure!
Beverly: privacy. Hahahaha
Discovering my design style – for now I am really happy with a minimalist style, but that may be more from a starting with basic forms perspective. Trying to learn about design, but not as simple to find materials as I thought – textbooks
We’ll be keeping the episodes up and hosted for another 12-months – so get them downloaded and listened to while you can. 🙂
I’ve ordered our final patreon gift – there are still a few spots open if you sign up before the end of February to get it!
Look for Jenny’s new podcast Insewmniacs on podcatchers near you starting in March.
