What’s up sewers and fabric hoarders!

I thought I’d pass along two dresses… both can be made to order… as usual, the first one is made in a size 6/8 so those are ready to ship!

Team Spirit dress in Lark by Amy Butler. Oh how I love this fabric… obviously, right!

Pantone's color of the year is pale purple. But let's be honest…I hate that color! This is my favorite print so far with any sort of purple in it. Just sayin'.

Well, I’m a little embarrassed about this… but I’ve had my shop open for about a week or so now….and I’ve NOT had a sale yet.

GASP!

Let’s totally change that reality, shall we???

As I type this, I’m sitting in a cabin in Arkansas where it’s about 55 degrees. I can see on my weather app that it’s just about the same temperature in Austin.  WHAT. IS. GOING. ON. HERE????? This craziness must stop. I cannot go much longer without breaking a sweat, y’all. Agreed????

Here’s to hoping we can usher Spring in… with what else other than….

SEERSUCKER!   {Hollah!}

This is one of my favorite strapless dresses of all time. It's made to order… any size, length can be up to 33" from underarm to hemline.

And here is one of my all-time favorite photos and ways to wear this dress! Give a round of applause to Indiana Adams of AdoredAustin.com for modeling this so beautifully and pregnantly! (She's since gone on to be pregnant TWO more times… must be the dress!)

I am on a bit of a roll in regards to finally creating new options for my Etsy shop.  I am ALWAYS thinking about dresses that I’d love to make and offer in my shop; however, most of the time those dresses remain in the closet of my brain.  And that is a very messy closet!

First, I added a sleeved version to the Team Spirit Dress.  Go Team!

Now, I’ve added a billowy version to my line of strapless dresses.

I. must. find. reason. to. wear. this!

This version was drafted using a vintage pattern from the ’70’s.  I love the sweetheart neckline!  I added length and the sash.  I think it’s a bit updated but still funky.  I suppose different fabric options could play it up or down in pretty cool ways!

These, as you can tell, take a LOT of fabric.  (whenever you cut something on the bias it tends to take up lots of fabric!)  So, I will need to price these a bit higher than my standard strapless dresses; however, I think it’s worth it.  There is a LOT of POW FACTOR in this dress.  I’ve created this one long, but, of course, it could go shorter, too.

This version is what’s titled OOAK in Etsy language … meaning: One of A Kind.  I’m offering this one at a discount since it’s my sample…$78, size 6/8 possibly even a 10!

I hope to be posting many…okay, a few… more new dresses soon!  And coats, and capes, and yada yada yada.

Well, if you read yesterday’s post then you understand why I haven’t posted much in the way of actual created pieces … I’ve been hard at work on a new non profit!  It’s super exciting, and I can’t wait to see what comes of it.

Although this fun new project has kept my mind very busy the last few months, I have actually been busy with  my machine too…several Etsy orders have been and are being completed, and I finally put my scissors to one of my favorite fabrics…I had less than 2 yards, so I resorted to none other than yet another strapless number.  This one is a tunic / mini dress.  I have to be honest – I LOVE IT!  I’m not sure I can sell it.  Still thinking about that … I think I’ll say that if it doesn’t sell by Sunday afternoon, then YAY FOR ME, I’ll pack it up and take it to Vail, Colorado with me!

Size small, hits about mid thigh. Price: $75

Isn't this just the happiest fabric you've ever seen!?!

I really like how the yellow polka dots add a little flair to the belt!

Belt doubles as a scarf!

I’ve also been working on a few things for the girls, a dress for my trip to Vail, Colorado … and my summer project – recovering these:

I found 2 of these on Craigslist for $45 total ...

Hoping they'll look something like this one from Anthropologie by the end of summer! Can. not. wait!

Okay friends … go to sleep.
