Midweek planning session to hopefully get back in the building and growing my little business. I have sketches and samples I need to work though and see what I really want to work on for the rest of the week. I have just finished a big commission so I want to just take a moment to figure out how I want to express my own artistic side. My love of corsetry is the basis of my ‘art’ so I really want to delve further into it and combine the engineering of patterning and creativity with embellishments and fabrics. I will still be working with commissions and alterations but I don’t want to lose my passion for my own art. I think I will do another year of corsetry and see how much further I can go in that time. I have the #conferenceofcorsetry coming up in August so I think this is the perfect time to pick it all back up again 😁🎉#diaryofasingleworkingmum #cairnsdressmaker #handmadeclothing #corsetry #yearofcorsetryagain

My soft and flows rayon overalls are almost done! I’m really hoping I can start offering these in my shop but as this fabric can vary wildly in price, I will do some more planning and see if I can do it by the middle of the year. Let me know if this would be something you would be interested in! Www.melissajanedesign.com . . . . . #cairnsdressmaker #overalls #rayon #diaryofasingleworkingmum #handmadeclothing #madeincairns
