Yup you hear it right from the title. I’ve been trying to sew some clothes. The reason I’m doing this because…
I want to fulfill my dream to become an entrepreneur in fashion industry. Especially in cute or kawaii fashion. But because I start from the bottom (really, from zero), I’ve been trying to make the clothes on my own. From designing, buying materials, pattern making, cutting, sewing, finishing, and.. taking photos (even though I haven’t reach the photography step).
You know what.. For almost a month, I only made 1 finished dress!!! That’s horrifying to me ahaha. Because my goal is 24 clothes for maximum two weeks, full time. But turned out, I have so many things to do. For example, I’ve been using almost 3 days just to make taxation identification number (NPWP), and that’s really drained my energy I don’t know why haha. And then, my best friend wedding is coming soon! I have to make the bridesmaid dress, and of course the gift hehe. Not to mention I have to set aside at least two days for Youtube and this blog. So, I only have 4 days in one week (including one day on weekend) to do anything else including this projects.
If you follow my instagram, maybe you have seen the first dress for the collection. I have made instagram stories about that. So if you want to see my progress, follow my instagram ;). Okay. I actually have cut 5 clothes that is ready to be sewn. So if I have the time, I want to finish those in one day. So I can have 5 clothes finished in one day!! Muhuhahaha!
Oh yeah, also enjoy the pictures of Stylish Dress Book in this post. It’s not necessarily related to what I’m writing now haha. But a post without pictures is so plain to me. So please enjoy the beauty of that book.
If you don’t know what this book is. Stylish Dress Book is a sewing book. It actually from Japan. But there is the english version, so I bought that. It has pictures of the dresses, tutorials of how to make the dresses. Plus! Plus. Sewing patterns for all the dresses!! Yeah you hear it right. SEWING PATTERNS FOR ALL DRESSESS! All dresses in the book.
I LOVE IT!
So enjoy these while I’m blabbering haha.
Oh well until this point, I’m not sure what to write again. Because I think I have written all the things in my head hahaha.
So the point is, I’m currently making my own first collection. Because I made the clothes by myself right now, maybe it can be called couture. It’s limited. I’m really excited actually to share it to you! Aaaa!! I will try my best to finish it soon!
Oh yeah, for my first collection, I use fabric that I already have right now. Because I want to use it up until I don’t have any fabric left sitting around on my room! Haha. I sometimes buy fabric without any plan. So it just sitting there untouch. Ups.. I want to change that habit. But first, let me finish those. It’s challenging of course, because the fabric sometimes doesn’t spark ideas to me. I’ll try my best.
I’m also making the website to showcase my collection. I know that there are so many marketplace to showcase them. But.. I just.. I just want to have my own website! I will use marketplace as well, but website is still a must for me. This is the website (it’s currently on development).
My brand is still I Wear A Bow. But because I have already use this domain for blog, I added Collections in it. I don’t want to mix this blog with an online shop. I want to have a separate website.
Oh! I also have made the instagram account for that. But as you can see, my first I Wear A Bow collection isn’t there yet. I have used it to market my preloved clothes ahaha. Yeah, I’ve been selling my preloved clothes. It’s running low now, my preloved clothes. So happy hahaha. So go follow it to get updated about my collection.
And I think that’s it for now.
Wish me luck! I will try my best! I feel like I have already close with my dream life! It’s in the process.. in the process.. *positive thinking
Have a wonderful day everyone~
Love, peace, courage,
