Still coming up with ideas for the thought of having a space in a local vintage market and enjoying the process of sewing and making a few accessories to sell. Yesterday made three little dresses and will post the third one when I take a photo.
Wonder what we did before digital cameras, instant posts and life in the fast lane. Does anyone even remember a telephone booth, or a party line or home economics in high school? So much has changed and so little has changed in the same time.
Texting has taken the place of talking and the place of typing…
Little girls rare still little girls and love fun dresses to make them smile. BTW I had to make a couple more dresses for the girls, so they could wash the ones I made for them. Too Cute!
This last Friday my next door neighbor’s granddaughter beautifully modeled two of my recent dress designs. The top one shown here has a Paris theme with a beret made to wear with the dress. Hadley gave out white carnations to all the women attending the Mother’s Day luncheon. The dress features a T-shirt top with a Paris appliqué taken from the fabric.
The second dress is a class sailor dress with a fun hat to match. Both dresses are available to buy. This is new to me, so I working on pricing. Would love input.
I looked up the colors at our local Macy’s Wedding registry , then went out to find a combination of fabrics in a soft Delft Blue and Gray/brown. Hope she likes it!
The bright flowers captured my attention and rather than just put one, I left them connected and added a two and brought them down to the waist. These projects are fast and fun and since my granddaughter now has more than she needs, maybe I should start selling them? Etsy, Farmers Market or Ebay? What do you think, or maybe a local store?
When I go into a fabric store, I sometimes think I am the only one in the store that is not quilting. I am thrilled that so many people are quilting, because fabrics choices in cotton are now numerous. In the area where I live the stores are conscious not to carry the same prints, so if you travel even a little your choices are so broad.
I think I am enjoying this much more than painting and am thinking maybe I should start a cottage industry making fun girls clothes with hats. I just don’t think I am the “retail” type. Wonder if my little town could use a Frilly girls dress shop that sells toys and gives out cookies.
