Hello all I have been a bit tardy in posting on my blog that's because I have been busy with stuff. I have a new client who seems to have inspired me to new creative heights! This gentleman has a creative mind and wants to dress different than the rest which is very unusual for a man. As gutsy as men are when it comes to fashion they shy away from any changes, not sure why... It's great to be different, my address is 1 Left Field, always zig when everyone zags!
So this gentleman wants a jacket made out of a print fabric with black lapels and a funky lining. Check out my Instagram account @legrandchicitalia to see the picture of the fabrics. I created a pattern and mock up for him which fit 90% perfect so I made the necessary changes to be 100% perfect (at least I hope)! I have to do some pretty creative finishing which I will post as the work progresses on Instagram and Facebook.
Had a great weekend this weekend, went to a bridal shower in Toronto in the evening, nice to see family that I haven't seen in a while and catch up. With the social media it really feels like you are always in contact so it's like coming home and chatting without missing a beat. Everyone looked great, dressed to the nines, the food was OK but the homemade treats guests brought were AMAZING! There was a 30 foot long table full of trays of cookies, tarts, pastry of all kinds, shapes, flavours too good to describe. Everyone got a take out container full of treats to bring home, what a treat!
After such a great day and evening I drove home, everyone was concerned about me driving home alone from Toronto to north of Barrie on the 400, the common comment was why don't you stay over and go home tomorrow? The drive home was fine, driving is no problem for me, I love the highway will take that over city driving any day of the week and night time driving is even better, all the nuts have gone to bed LOL!! That was great, tunes were on, no traffic, made good time and then I walked in the front door with one load of stuff put them down and walked back to the car to get the rest of it. On my way to the car I thought to myself "huh I could have changed my shoes". The 5 inch heels I was wearing were getting a bit tiresome, I walked back in the door my heel caught on the weather strip and I proceeded to do a face plant on my marble floor! Let me tell you there is no cushion whatsoever on marble, I dropped like a stone landing on my knee, shoulder, and chin! So Sunday I did virtually nothing, resting for the week to come. I'm fine now, my pride is fine too....
