The picture above is the culmination of an entire days work. My battle with super lightweight modal jersey, my over-locker and my straight stitch machine. None of which would co-operate with each other.
When I started my little businesses, I knew it was going to be hard, but today I am really truly feeling how hard things can actually get. I am in the midst of preparing my next range and have found myself encountering more problems than I can really manage. I am struggling a lot with my materials - as the above picture demonstrates - I am a perfectionist and I work with some of the most difficult fabrics available. I also make lingerie - one of the hardest things to master in the sewing world. I am doing this on my own, and I still work part-time to support myself. Giving up is not really an option, and I am willing to do pretty much whatever it takes to get this business going. But today, it feels like I am standing in front of the biggest brick wall known to man.
