As you probably know from the title I’m gong to tell you about an I hate my life moment. I think I was being modest when I typed ‘moment’, because it’s more like moments.
What happened? I went to Tessuti to buy my fabric for my collection and IT WASN’T THERE!!! WAHHHHH :((((((((((((((((
It was meant to be just like the one in the photo (which is the one I had to buy) except instead of the beige-y/creamy colour, it was black.
I am so mad at myself for not going to buy it earlier. But it’s too late. It’s gone. I just didn’t think anyone would buy it all. I just needed three metres to make my menswear jacket. The problem is that the outfits I had planned and the colours i had planned will not match with these colours. I had already bought the jersey knit fabric for the tunic that’s meant to go under this jacket and it’s like a taupe colour, and was meant to have black leggings with it. Those items in those colours will look like crap with this colour for the jacket. The black would have worked perfectly.
Now I have 4 metres of black jersey that I might have no purpose for. I thought of choosing other fabrics for my collection, but it’s too late, there is no time for that. I am so worried that it’s all going to look like crap. I am so worried that I just thought maybe I should just drop out. But I can’t do that. I have already invested so much time and money in this. I have sacrificed so much to be doing what I am doing and to be where I am. The pressure is totally killing me right now. And it is all because I didn’t go and buy my fabric when I should have.
Moral of the story guys, don’t wait until the last minute to buy your fabric.
Lesson learned too late by me. Wish me luck.
