New skirt, new news, it was well worth a blog post, right? A little advice: stay until the end! I have a nice surprise for you at the end of the article!
Solicitations, mails of requests for partnership couture or others, I receive them every week…! That's great, my small business grows and I spend a lot of time there.
Time to exchange, to respond systematically to every request, every message here or elsewhere, I try to be responsive every time. Even the most wacky requests I answer, I find that very important. As much as I love when someone answers me.
There are those with whom I interact by phone, Instagram or just by email. The feeling counts for a lot and I very often propose a telephone exchange which I find always more cordial!
And then there are the beautiful encounters. My Little Coupon is part of ! They are those who understood how it all worked, respect for our work, for our community. Evidence in the exchange, easily and in a good mood! Quickly they trusted me. I really appreciate and adhere to the way they interact with the sewing community globally, I find myself there a lot!
The team therefore offered me in December to host a live on their Instagram account in order to sew an outfit or other in one of their fabric, as a step-by-step or tutorial, And obviously I said YES! But it needed a nice project and not too long!
I'm used to live now, I host it regularly: it's not an easy exercise, you have to know how to answer everyone's questions, not be too long, be able to structure the live without to lose ! you have to know how to explain the steps through this small phone screen, and at the same time know how to have a good time, with dynamism and clarity and know how to manage the quack, whether it is phone quacks, machine problem etc.
It's okay, I got it all guys, just let me do my live shows!
And advice to the population: live is clearly my favorite exercise: I am like a fish in water! With me, we promise we won't fall asleep
So I was missing the sewing project: soon enough I decided to go with a super hot model that I really like, a skirt, but not just any one: the Justine skirt of Ready to sew ! A pattern sold for € 2, all of the sales profits of which are donated each month to an association! Which motivated me even more! Bravo Raphaëlle!
So I can already hear you from here: "yes but I don't have instagram"
So already, you can just create an account without publishing anything in order to come and participate in the live. Otherwise don't worry, I'll show you my version here so as not to create too much frustration with anti-Instagram
I'll show you my skirt and I'll give you all the info afterwards!
I wear my skirt with the Norma blouse from Fibremood
The fabric I used is to find HERE
SEE YOU on Sunday March 28 at 4:00 p.m. on the Instagram account of My Little Coupon
GIFT: with the code ANNECHARLOTTE you will be able to benefit from -20% on the ENTIRE site until midnight Sunday March 28!
The live will last 1h30 maximum. To prepare for it, it is essential to:
- cut out your fabric pieces: the skirt can be sewn short, midi version (mid-calf) or long as here, and can be worn all year round depending on the fabric chosen!
- heat-seal the parts where the pattern indicates
- overcast the sides of the skirt pieces only
- provide buttons and possibly piping for the belt and pockets and all the necessary haberdashery
- prepare your sewing machine beforehand with the matching thread
- bring an iron
BRIEF be ready to sew once the live starts!
We will not be able to sew the skirt from A to Z, the idea is above all to discuss the major technical points together AND to have a great time! (or the opposite but promised on it will advance at best!
See you soon,
