Great pattern. Easy to follow and a pleasure to tat. Thank you!
From unemployement to the president's palace
When my daughter was born, my husband had no work. I just got my degree, but with three small children had no hope of finding a job.
I've sewn since I was 11 years old, and I have finished a number of private design schools. My big dream was to design outfits, but there are no jobs in this genre.
I took a deep breath, I posted an ad in the local newspaper, and started my business.
Over the years I got a lot of experience in tailoring, raw materials, sewing, embroidery, and especially human behavior.
I have an increasing number of orders received, but it did not solve the financial troubles since the working hours / price ratio was very bad.
I was about to give up my business, when received a phone call from the wife of the State President ( so the First Lady ) and she ordered some outfits. This way my creations met the Pope, some other presidents, princesses, celebrities like Roger Moore, etc.
The following year continued my business with a partner. I designed a collection, and presented a fashion show in Budapest Kempinski Hotel Corvinus ( a very high end Swiss origin luxury hotel ).
All this was really a huge professional succes, but not financial.
The partnership did not last long ...
I started to re-build, learned tatting and felting, to incorporate these technics into my creations.
I decided to change houte-couture to préte á porter.
By opening my Etsy shop, I have "increased my commercial frameworks".
For now, I'm selling individual pieces, but the first, real, individual Silhuette collection is coming soon!
