A week in Review

I sit here and watch the birds tease my cat as she sits in the chair by the window and advises me of their presence. Can you find the birds?

This past week went by faster than I had anticipated, and my planning was a little fleeting at best. My intentions on Friday mornings are to lay out my plan for the following week. Last week, well, I wanted to do anything but sit at the desk any more than was absolutely necessary. Fortunately for y’all I knew some of what I wanted to post this week. 

I have been working on a customers’ Historic Recreation shirt and dress. Here is the video from where I dyed the fabric to obtain the perfect color. (And even the swatches to get to the final). Kitters thought she was helping once or twice. Here are a few other photos.  

I have been writing the transcript for the video that will post next Friday – patternmaking. And it will provide a sneak peek into the Fall/Winter 2021 collection that will be virtually showing in May. 

Next Wednesday, February 24, I will be live on my YouTube channel for anyone with questions.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAJ5-WFNIL1vGqJKQELMN_Q If you won’t be able to attend, email your questions to Jennifer.adams@lucky-7-studios.com prior to Feb 24 and I will answer them live. 

The renovations of the studio continue. I have to wait till its finished before I can add more photos.

This was the last week of the Introduction to Mantua-making: An 18th Century English Gown in Miniature by Burnley and Trowbridge  https://burnleyandtrowbridge.com. There is much I have learned and hopefully have made a few friends.  

I am looking forward for the weather to break. I need to get outside on the trail again. Here are a few photos from last year. 

Be sure to follow us on all our socials. You may find a surprise, as we post throughout the week. 

Dropping Our First Video Today

Hello lovelies, 

Today’s post includes the first video for Lucky 7 Studios. We are extremely excited that you are here and look forward to many more videos to come. 

This video is my working studio before. It is a little messy even after I have cleaned it up. I seem to work well in chaos. Ok, that isn’t quite so true. I am not sure it is quite chaos… or maybe it is. Depends on your perspective. However, everything does not have a home and the sewing table is a little smaller than I need. You can see my design wall of sorts. This is where my ideas go when they leave my head. [lightbulb with finger pointing image]. The shelves on the wall above my sewing and serger machine are where much of my notions and haberdashery live. There is a corner (you can see I hang my patterns and muslins) but the fuse box for the power is hidden there and, well… living in a rural area, sometimes, things sort of trip for no reason. (ok, I probably overloaded something somewhere). The big white hutch is a catchall for all things, sewing related or not.  Patterns, fabric, notions, books, instructions, vintage cameras…. You get the point, I think we all have one of these somewhere. The black dresser is full of muslin, fashion fabric, lining, organza, quilting fabric, interfacing and more…. The sewing machine in the table is on the list of priorities to be cleaned up and useable before “farm season” starts around here. 

Thank you for visiting. We look forward to showing you the “after” video when the facelift is complete. For now, stay tuned for Februarys video – we will be making patterns for the forthcoming fall/winter 2021 collection and a preview of the pattern for the Victorian Dress. We may have some special fur guests also. 

The End of One…. Is the beginning of Another

Just as one door closed, ok more like slammed in my face, there was a slightly cracked, very brightly colored door down the hall…. it beckoned to me from a distance, as it had for some time… This time, it seemed to shout …. “Hey You!” …. I ran down the hall – hoping the door didn’t close before I arrived…. and I bust it open! What to my surprise did I see? My Lucky 7 Studios business waiting for me! It had been beckoning, pulling me to come in from the hall…. I stood there in awe and wonder… I finally walked through the doorway and the lights came on so bright and enlightened the entire space! Oh, how beautiful…

This was the beginning of a new journey, a new adventure! A freedom to be as creative as I choose and to build this business on a foundation that will stand the test of time! It will be seeped in personality with carefully created and crafted garments.

2021 is full of hope and dreams, not only for Lucky 7 Studios, but for all those who wish to dream! Take the leap and allow Lucky 7 Studios to create a custom made garment tailored just for you! If you want a capsule wardrobe, that can be done too! Oh, you want a special wedding dress that you cannot find anywhere – well, we can help that become a reality!

The goals for 2021 may seem lofty this year, but it is time to stand up and be heard!

  1. 2 historically accurate garments, 1 from there Victorian Era, 1 from the Edwardian Era
  2. 2, yes 2, Fashion shows.
    1. the fall/winter 2021 show will be presented in the late spring digitally (you are not going to want to miss this)
    2. the spring/summer 2022 show will be presented Live in Salem, OH on August 14th – you definitely do not want to miss this one!
  3. A monthly video (on YouTube) showcasing some of the current work, techniques we use, or maybe something crazy!
  4. Weekly Blog posts and newsletters.

Throughout the year, there may be an opportunity for a percentage off a custom design or gift give-a-way, so you might want to follow along!

We will be taking client custom orders – so do not fear, we are here to help you achieve the look you so desire!

Follow us on any of our social medias…. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook Business, Facebook group, YouTube, and of course here on the blog and the website. There are changes coming to the sight, you won’t want to miss! 2021 will be the BEST year yet!
