Guys, guess what?!
I’ve created a platform where you can sell your sewing services!
I know I’ve disappeared for so long but I’ve been working on this project for you all and I want to tell you about my motivations behind it and then I’d love to get your input and feedback.
I understand this is so important because we don’t really have anything that caters specifically to our talents. We have Etsy, but it’s so broad that it’s easy to get lost amongst all the other creatives.
So this is for those of you who want to maybe launch your own clothing line or those who want to make some extra money on the side creating made-to-measure clothing.
The site is called Bespokle (Bespoke with an L (don’t ask me why)) and at the moment it’s mostly targeting UK based sewists, hence why the currency is in Great British Pounds (GBP), however it’s open to everyone living anywhere so you’re all free to join!
It is currently in its beta stage and so it’s not the final product and this is where I’d need your feedback so that I can continuously improve on it.
At the moment, I’m trying to amass sewists so that buyers can have lots of people to choose from, so please bear with me if you’re not getting any orders, it’s going to take me some time to get enough sewists on the platform before launching to buyers.
Now, why I started Bespokle. A few months ago, I mentioned that I wanted to create my own clothing line, however, there is a lot to it. I literally lost motivation and found myself not really doing anything sewing related. Then Bespokle came to me as a way to help others easily sell their designs and break into the fashion industry. It’s there as a way for you to get your name out into the world and have people wear your designs.
And even if you don’t want to start a clothing line and just want to make a bit of money creating custom clothes, then making the buyer’s chosen design is also very possible.
If selling your services is something you’d definitely love to do, then joining is easy! Just visit bespokle.com and sign up as a seller.
Now that I’ve started Bespokle, it doesn’t mean that I’ve completely quit sewing. There is much for me to still teach you all but I can’t do everything at once, so once Bespokle is at a point where it doesn’t need my attention, I will return to YouTube!
I’d love to know what your thoughts are so please do get in touch or leave comment!
All the best!
