I'm still here.

I am alive and well-- just a little tired everyday. I am getting used to my full-time job in terms of time and energy needs. This is the first full-time job I have ever had in my life, and even though I love it and would detest going back to sewing at home right now, I'm exhausted when I come home from work and keep even comprehend  sewing for myself. I know that needs to change if this blog is going to survive (which HAS TO HAPPEN-- my future depends on it), it is just going to take a little time for me to adjust to my new life. I hope you can all adjust with me. 

So for today's post (or, more like "this week's post), I wanted to answer a question that I got a few weeks back about the pattern making textbook I use and have learned with for the past three years:

The book is expensive (about $100) but totally worth it. You can pattern draft anything you want with this book. I highly recommend it. I only have the third edition, so if you buy the latest one you'll have one-up on me. 


About my job. I've posted these videos before, but this is sort-of what it's like at my work all day, but no awesome white work coat. I am sooo lucky to have this experience to learn from (not to mention the great cash-flow.. hello Coach purse!).

Parts 1-4 all on YouTube. Search "Signe Chanel"


  1. Thank you for answering my ? about your book. I am loving the "Signe Chanel" shows.

  2. If you don't mind my asking, what was your major? I am moving to Provo with my husband so he can go to Law school at BYU. I would like to get my Bachelor's in something I love, and I love sewing!
