Ok, here is the thing with me. I make clothes. I design them, I make the patterns and I sew the pieces. Over the last few months I have been experimenting with this and that and working on a very small collection to sell on Etsy. I hadn't yet narrowed things down but I decided to sell all the pieces I had so far since the quest for my perfect collection can go on forever if I tried. I took photos and mentioned an upcoming sample sale and everyone here has been very kind (thank you!). Last week I had a trip planned to San Francisco so about 5 days before leaving I uploaded everything onto Etsy because I knew it would be a time consuming processes. I expected the things to just sit there until I got back from San Fran at which point I would make some sort of effort at spreading the word but then the strangest thing happened..... the stuff started selling all by itself. The items in my sample sale section all sold out in a couple of days. One item in particular, the "Jimmy Dress", received the most attention and requests. Who knew???
(Jimmy Dress short sleeve version (L), tunic version(R).
At this time there are still a few things left in my shop and lots more to come. I am working on a pair of high-waisted denim shorts right now as well as a new backless sun dress that should be pretty dope. I also brought back a huge amount of fabric with me back from San Fran (go weak dollar!) which I am also really looking forward to working with.
So I would like to again, thank all my customers thus far and all the lovely people who made unexpected but very much appreciated posts about my collection.
Lastly, I want to add that the content of this blog will remain the same, however, I will be adding sewing and possibly pattern making tutorials in the future so if there is anything in particular anyone would like to learn, let me know in the comments and I will do my best to make it happen.
