Ask away!

Ask away!

Being a blogger opens up a portion of your life to the public.  The more popular you become the more questions people have.  Some things I’m open to discuss and some I will completely ignore.

I’m that person that loves to share information, have it be fashion, skincare, shopping tips, home decor etc I’m not of the mindset of not wanting to give away the goods.  If there is a way to empower someone, I’m all over that.  But on the flip side I have to keep aspects of my life to myself.

While taking a look at my blog analytics, I was in tears laughing so hard at some of the search keywords people have used, here are a few doozies :  Beaute Jadore  husbands job, Beaute Jadore plastic surgey and Beaute Jadore fake pregnancy which took the cake lol.

I also receive many emails ranging from sewing questions to skincare concerns.  I try very hard to answer questions but many do fall through the cracks.   In an effort to create a FAQ section I’m opening this post up to questions.  Feel free to ask the question in the comment section or email me at nikki@beautejadore.

    I'm impressed with your ability not to stash fabric. How do you do it? I don't care about fake pregnancies, husband's jobs, plastic surgery, etc. LOL

    Everything you make is beautiful and looks great on you! I do want to know how you got started sewing and the inspiration behind some of your makes? Would you ever consider showing the visual steps in how you modify your patterns on your blog?

      I second that! I would really like a step by step of one of your pattern modifications and how you "knew" to make that particular modification in order to achieve that look. Thanks!

    Where do you get your designs for sewing? Was/Is there a class you took/take, or a website that you use to make a coat/skirt/dress?

  11. December 15, 2014 / 8:37 pm

    Hi! I'd like to know where you find your inspiration for your garments and do you have a large stash of fabric and patterns? Also, do you have a designated sewing studio and will you ever share your sewing space with your readers?

  12. December 15, 2014 / 8:38 pm

    Where do you find inspiration for your projects? and the process you take to bring it into reality?

  15. December 15, 2014 / 9:24 pm

    What are your key sewing tools, the things you must have? I've been following your blog for a while now and have bought items to start sewing with patterns, but cant work up the nerve to sew because i keep feeling like im missing something.

  16. December 15, 2014 / 9:24 pm

    I'm just hugely impressed with your pattern alterations and use of fabulous fabrics ALL THE TIME! No major questions really….. Keep on being fabulous!

    Your sewing is amazing, but so is your hair. How do you get your hair so shiny? It always looks like it's in really good condition.

    I totally admire you! Keeping fit, creating your clothing. Couple questions… did you start sewing? what inspires the clothing you make for you and baby? Any tips for new mothers trying to balance fitness and baby care? Do you plan on creating a line in the future? Thank you!

    Hi! Thank you so much for opening up for questions! 🙂 Your instagram and different pins from your blog inspired me to get into sewing. You make such beautiful, well-tailored clothes!

    What is a good sewing machine for an absolute beginner? What should I look for when purchasing? Do you have any advice for beginners? I am in the DMV area as well and it seems most people shop at G Street for fabric. Are there any other local places you like to purchase fabric?

    Thanks in advance!

    What kind of serger do you use?
    How do you get such a perfect fit?
    Can you create a category search option for some of your tutorials?
    Can you do a post about fabrics, interfacing and linings?

  26. December 16, 2014 / 6:56 pm

    Would you consider doing some vids of your pattern alteration? Also do you work outside of your home? I ask because you crank out your garments so fast! I'm totally in awe of your work!

  28. December 18, 2014 / 5:28 am

    I see you have no problem purging your closet :)…What piece(s), that you've made, have you kept the longest? Which piece(s) will you never give up? Do you do muslins? What technique, fabric, type of clothing have you found the most challenging? What took the longest to master? What's your opinion of buttonholes? 🙂

    I just discovered your blog through Pinterest. I'll become a regular shortly. You do find work and you have great ideas to make the look your own. Did you take professional swing/design classes?

    Nikki, when are you starting a youtube channel, where you consistently post vids. Stylish and grown vloggers, especially of color are far and few in between, so when can we expect you on the yt?

    As are you ever gonna do a collab with Mimi G., you guys would be great on one of those?

    Can you do a post on how you keep your legs and lower body in shape?

    Also, can we get an update skincare regimen?

  33. December 22, 2014 / 5:56 pm

    Can you post information on sewing for "newbies"? How easy is it to teach yourself to sew? What is the best machine to use? Thank you in advance for taking the time out to answer questions.

  34. December 25, 2014 / 6:06 pm

    First of all, thank you for taking the time to post your work and congratulations on the newest addition to the family. How did you get started sewing? What would you advise a new sewer to do? Where should I start? What is a good beginners sewing machine? Patterns?

  35. December 29, 2014 / 4:56 pm

    What beauty products do you use on your skin (face/body)? Do you have a routine?
