I'm Still Alive + OWOP 2014

Ya'll - I promise I'm still alive and kicking! With the fall starting back up my life has turned hectic again: my job started; I took on another once-per-week gig; I have two children's choirs at church plus a job as Music Associate to my hubby; I'm also working with the local high school's marching band.

As busy as all of that sounds, I am still sewing:
1. I am officially signed up for One Week, One Pattern and I've vowed to wear Nettie + Zinnia all week long! Woohoo! OWOP begins Saturday, September 6 and ends Friday, September 12, 2014.

2. I'm currently testing the Senna dress by Lindsay and I'm super excited as it's my first time testing a pattern! 

3. I'm working on plugging away at my fall wardrobe and I have some new garments to share ASAP!

I've also been approached lately about sewing for hire. I'm thinking up ways to make this work and make it profitable given my limited time to sew. So that leads me to the question:

Do you sew for hire? How do you determine your prices? Other thoughts or suggestions?
(Thanks in advance!)


  1. Looking forward to seeing your makes!

  2. Wow, you are a busy girl! I am looking forward to seeing your new makes.
    I don't sew for hire, but I have been approached once or twice. I just don't really feel confident enough to have my work critiqued by a "customer" yet. But maybe in the future...

    1. Yeah, I feel the same even though my clothing is good enough for me to wear. Haha! That's an odd combination - making it for someone else who's probably less picky about construction makes me nervous!
