What the postman brought me!
|I've got the package full of things|
Everything was wrapped with so much care! Every item came covered in tissue paper and bubble wrap, all inside a cute little box! I absolutely love the packaging: vintage-looking and good quality. But the price sort of suggested it.
The biggest thing in the package was this pattern of a beautiful panel dress which I've been eyeing for ages! And then lots of pins and needles and some beeswax. I also got a bodkin which can be used instead of my loop turner on some occasions.
But then another package arrived! And it contained a sketchbook from Fashionary!
Shame on me, I can't draw at all! The best thing I've ever drawn was a picture of imaginary galaxies when I was 5 or 6. Discovering this sketchbook was like a godsend!
The first pages of the notebook provide lots of useful information: body measurements, patterns and drawings of different types of clothing, fabric dictionary, laundry labels etc. And then many pages with female body templates to play with! I decided that by end of the year I should learn how to draw, but in the fashion business sketching is even more important!
As if by chance, this morning I saw this video in the Threads magasine, where an illustrator, Yelen Ayé, shows how to sketch! Seriously, ladies and gentlemen, I feel so enthusiastic to try!!!! I promise to show you the results even if they are hideous.
I am wondering, are there other sewing lovers out there who cannot draw?
