September 2017 Monthly Roundup

I’ve decided to start a monthly tradition! After the end of each month, I’ll take a bit of time to share with all of you what I’ve been up to.

I hope you’ll enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at Auralynne, and the chance to catch up on any info you may have missed on social media.

…Has been busy but great! I’ve taken on a partner – as of August, and this month she was trained in enough things to really save me a lot of time. This time of year it can be very difficult to keep up with customer inquiries on top of the amount of custom sewing orders I have – so it’s been great having a second person around.

We had an epic photoshoot planned for September! With beaches all having free parking after Labor Day, and the surprisingly warm weather, I thought it might be awesome to visit one of them in pirate costume (complete with props) and take some photos. Just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day, of course!

But you know how best laid plans work… The first photo-day had to be postponed when my sister caught sick, and then some unexpected delays while working on custom orders ran me late on my sewing, and I had to sew solid for about three week’s time to catch up!

We did manage to snag some pretty photos of my burgundy/gold/beige gown in between doing festival stuff at the Vermont Steampunk festival. Here are a few of my favorites:

I didn’t actually get any new patterns made this month because, well, Halloween season – but I did a little tweak to my “Tuxedo Skirt” pattern. I added pleats in the back and I think it’s at least 150% cuter now!
