About

I am raising funds so that I can purchase quality materials for creating a spring fashion line. I am 26, have been sewing since I was 12, and each year get better at my craft. I like to make clothing because it allows me greater freedom in my choices when it comes to expressing who I am. I remember feeling frustrated in the fitting room around my junior high years because all clothing is typically made the same way, when not one person has an identical body. My freestyle patterns fit my body perfectly and I try to do this for my customers, too. While I may not swoon over certain designs, styles, or trends in a retail store, my skills let me create something that I will like and keep. Making my own wardrobe also enables me a huge savings on retail costs. The more I do it, the easier it becomes. What initially may have taken 5 hours to make, now takes 2. It is a great feeling of accomplishment, especially because I developed the skills outside of a classroom. I aim to inspire others to follow, teach themselves something new, and test their mental limits!

Risks and challenges

One of my risks is that I may not reach my goal in time. I would really like this to work so that I can begin creating immediately. I intend to have my line ready to present in my first ever fashion show this April or May. I plan to overcome this risk simply by sending out positivity and making my rewards worth the donation.

One of my greatest challenges is figuring out how to make new designs and work with new fabrics. I usually seek information or help from online tutorials and instructions. These help immensely. Having extra income to use on materials is helpful. If any setbacks arise, I will just take a deep breath and start again. It also helps to move from one piece to another, to avoid creative blocks.
