Since dropping out of school this semester I've had a teeny bit of free time, and we can't have that.
It seems as though everyone and their sister has an Etsy store. Just a place to put up those random, heart-felt projects that we do, for no reason, for fun and experiment, with the slightest hope that they may make us a buck or two. I thought I might join the masses.
I've been wanting to make some super-girly dresses, using happy print and texture mixing, so here is my first one (look past the shoddy workmanship...it's just a prototype....and you know "shoddy" is just how I roll).
At left is my idea for the shop name and tag design.
Give me your opinions on the whole direction.
I started with a Vogue pattern, to get the basic measurements, but altered it as I went along, adding piping, topstitching and some wide ribbon trim I had that happened to match my fabrics exactly added as a cuff.
I am obviously jonesing hard for spring. And picnics and swinging on swings (which this dress is ideal for).
