an i hate my life moment

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.

  1. SHIT!!!! I hate that stomach dropping feeling when you know it’s gone wrong. Could you skip work today to get more time to find different fabric?

    1. No 😦 that’s not an option unfortunately. I think I’ll just make the jacket first and then just try and work it out from there. It’s not going to look like it was supposed to but I hope it will look just a little bit nice.

  2. Okk no dropping out allowed!! I nearly dropped out weeks before I graduated but I’m glad I didn’t! It is the worst feeling when you find the perfect fabric and then it’s not available. But it’s not the end of the world, pick something else and make it work. It might not be what you originally wanted but at the end of the day it’s not worth being stressed about. Good luck!!! x x x

    1. Thank you. Thank you so much. I feel a bit better today. It is just so disappointing. You are right, it’s not worth stressing so much over and it’s not the end of the world. I’ll try to remember that. I just really wanted it to look great and I think this will let me down. oh well. Haha, bloody fashion! Thanks xxx
