I’ve worked hard the past few evenings and got more postings up on the Etsy Shop! Â Here are a few to check out:
Thanks for stopping by and for checking out some of my listings!
My first product is listed in the shop! Very excited! A half apron in a sunglasses patterned fabric.
The shipping probably isn’t right…but that’s something to correct in the future
I finally got my dress form together this weekend. Â I’d purchased an old dress form body (no stand) at a thrift shop a few years ago when I had originally planned on starting my shop. Â The cover on it was not in great shape, so I removed it. Â They body then didn’t turn out to be in the greatest shape either… So I covered it in some batting. Â And then covered that batting with some one-way stretch beige fabric. Â The project was a bit out of my skills-base in terms of tailoring, but I think it turned out ok.
The stand is actually a tall candle holder that I grabbed at a different thrift shop. Â My super helper boyfriend helped with attaching the base to the dress form.
Here’s some photos of the progress and final product
I figured I might as well start blogging about my progress towards actually opening my shop. Â Today was an exciting day because I actually made my first product! Â I put together two aprons, one being made from this fun yellow swirly fabric you see here. Â Hopefully this isÂ my running start and I can get a lot more product made in the near future!
