Yep, that’s right, my second set of blazer samples are officially done!! There is still a lot to do but I feel good about my progress to date…. and I think I’m pretty close to making my first set available for sale. I made some tweaks to my first jacket sample (see below) and played around with different fabric choices and patterns this time too. I think I have a pretty solid set that I’d like to make available for my initial “launch” of online sales. I’m definitely taking baby steps with this process but even with the baby steps…. I must admit that it’s still a bit scary. There is this uncertainty that always kind of sits there with me…. but I suppose that is normal, in particular for me, as I am a well known worry wart!!
(And yes, I know my eyes are closed on this photo but I still love it — goofy= me)
Anyway, even with my constant need to worry…. this process over the past few months has been so much fun…. and enlightening. I’ve discovered a lot about myself…. or maybe rediscovered. It’s like I am figuring things out about myself — things that I have always known but that had been – I don’t know – buried inside. I think we sometimes get so caught up in the grind of everyday life – that 9-5 – that we sometimes, somehow, lose ourselves and forget what we really love and are passionate about. So, I think that’s what I’ve enjoyed the most over the past months…. just remembering those things about myself. I’ve gotten so lost in THIS process… but in a good way. It’s like a whole new world for me and I’m really excited about what is to come.
