Sneak A Peek-a-Roo


Well, not really. Sorry for the tease. But, this is a sneak peek....and a very exciting thing for me to have finished. Finally.

This notebook holds all of BG's fall patterns. I designed many of the patterns for the fall line which I am super-duper proud and excited about. It was NO easy task. In fact, it was WAY easier in my head at night as I lay in bed thinking of new ideas. It was very hard to put things down on paper and then actually have them work out on the fabrics. I am by NO means a pattern designer. But hey, you never know until you try...right?

Anyways, this notebook is gold to me. I now have all sizes, lengths, inseams, chest measurements, etc. in here for all patterns. This book has taken me about a month or so. I would work on it, get burnt-out and then work on it again. Well, now there is nothing else to do then to take a small breather and then put it all in fabrics for the photo shoot.

As for orders for the fall line, I am thinking of doing a lottery system. There is no way possible that I will be able to take everyone's order. I am so sorry that I can't, but there is just no way. I sew all.the.time and just barely am able to get the orders done that I do take. It breaks my heart every time that I get an email of someone that wasn't able to get an order in. But, in order to keep BG the small funky little "company" that I want it to be, this is the way it will work. More details to come on the lottery system.

I know that many other clothing companies have their fall lines out already, but I appreciate everyone's patience with me this year. I won't have as long of a break as I had liked, but I do want to enjoy the small time off that I do have. So, I am turning off the light in the sewing room for the day and enjoying some "me" time.

Oh, and PS - I am now going to be moderating comments on both my personal and BG blog. PLEASE leave comments, I love them more than anything...but I have been getting killed with SPAM comments lately which blows my mind since you have to have word verification. Geeze. So, to keep all the nastys from commenting, I will be filtering it all. Boo for bad apples.

I've never been lucky with the state lottery, but I'm hoping to win the BG Mega Millions! ;) CANNOT wait to see the Fall Line!

I like the lottery idea. Then there's less of a chance someone can miss the order sign and it makes getting to order something just that much more special. Good plan. I would love to design some patterns for myself but I wouldn't even know where to START. Maybe in a pattern making class, huh?
