1. New sewing space (so far). One word: WINDOWS! 2. Taking measurements of rooms + spaces in the new apartment while we were still waiting on movers to arrive with our belongings.

Hi. My name is Raven.

It has been so long, I figured it appropriate to reintroduce myself. If you are reading this, I hope that you’ve been well! I think it’s been a long year for everyone, yet I can’t believe we’re already in the final days of September.

It is already FALL!

So anyway, I have moved from lovely, sunny San Diego to the Eastern time zone. (More about that in the video below!) This is something I swore to myself that I would NEVER do. But ah the things we’ll do for certain people that make both your heart light + your eyes roll.

Can I get a witness? No? That’s cool.

Well I’ve been trying to step up my Youtube video-creating game since I’ve really fallen off my craft and my hobbies for the majority of the year. I kinda blame my previous little sewing area (also showcased in the video below). It’s hard to work next to the kitchen sink and refrigerator, but I’ll take the most responsibility on this one. But now that I’m pretty settled in D.C., I’ve got a couple new projects on the table that I can’t wait to finish in between my work trips!

So cheers to new fresh starts here in my new city + my new sewing space!

P.S.– Before I go, I’d like to share some really cute sewing Youtubers that vlog their wardrobe makes, pattern/fabric hauls + sewing plans for each month and/or season. You guys, I’m obsessed! Check out a few of these ladies that you may, or may not, know about just yet!

Miss Judith Dee talks about her pattern haul + plans for her fall wardrobe. Umm can I say that I dig her fabric/pattern selections aaaaand her dark purple lippie she’s rocking in this video are on POINT!!

Meet Megan.
Ya’ll. She’s just downright adorable! In her second ever video she shows her completed makes that she models in different locations around her city. I really love how she showcases the imperfections as well, even though I thought her outfits turned out fantastic overall!

And finally there’s Elizabeth in her first sewing vlog ever sharing her makes + plans for her WEDDING!!!! I’m loving her fabric and pattern choices! (Umm can we all collectively swoon at her choice for the Kim Dress from the amazing By Hand London ladies?!?!?! *faints*)

Anyways. Okay. Seriously now. Bye!
