Can I tell you something personal to me that I’ve only shared with a very few people? Well, until now that is, HELLO! Many people of the internet!
15 years ago, I had the most vivid dream that I walked into a beautiful clothing store that was simple, clean and elegant. As I touched the clothes that were hanging, the beautiful, soft fabrics brushing against my fingers, I admired at the intricate details of each design that I’ve never seen before and thought, ‘What store is this? I must know.”
Then I woke up. I had no idea what that dream meant and went about my day but ever since that day 15 years ago, I frequently started to get vivid, detailed images of beautiful clothing that I’ve never seen anywhere just pop up in my head out of nowhere. I’m not even thinking about clothes, fashion or sewing, and the vivid image pops up in my head. And I know exactly what the fabric should feel like, I know the exact design of the fabric, the color, every detail. And they’re always, always modest.
In fact, I just had one before writing this post. It was a flowy, feminine, and elegant dress perfect for Spring/Summer.
Now only if I can somehow just find a whole team of people to start a clothing line where I only have to give them my vision and they make everything else happen and run the whole business for me. Because in the end, I just want a simple life. And all of that stuff overwhelms me and doesn’t appeal to me.
What do you think of my dream I had 15 years ago?
This reminds me of the show on Netflix, Velvet! The designers are so passionate about it. I’ve always loved fashion design, but I’m more or less a t-shirt and jeans or leggings person these days! If only it was that easy to make our dreams a reality!
This sounds like me. I’ve had similar dreams and visions, with no idea how to bring them to fruition.

Oh, you speak my heart but I’m probably double your age!
Keep inspiring others! I’m a newbie.. and a fan! I hope and my dream is that someday i can sew just like you do!
Hold it close and careful. You are very young and perhaps not yet in the season to see it come true but life is long. It may be for another time.
