frocks to be

frocks to be

I've been holed up at my sewing table, feverishly trying to meet my goal for the week. I don't think it's going to happen (a lofty goal of 10 complete new listings for my shop) but I've got quite a good start and several items complete. I love these fabrics, and must admit I'm going to have a hard time saying good-bye to some of these pieces. I've changed the way I'm listing my pieces now, weeding out the made-to-order and just listing items that are already complete, so I just have to ship them out upon an order. I may lose profit that way, if they don't sell, but that's the beauty of having two baby girls who love Mama's frocks! I think it's the worth the risk, and I've been searching for ways to save myself time lately so this makes the most sense. Can't wait until all of these pieces are complete!

That IS beautiful fabric! My girls have enough clothes, I've put sewing for them on hiatus...but I am ALWAYS tempted!!! (I guess it's a good thing I'm too busy to do much about it!)

Oh, they are so wonderful! Love your fabrics. Funny, I too make little smocks for my girl and now have a stockpile for sale at my friends store. Bags too. Have fun sewing!

Gorgeous frock in wonderful fabrics. It is really difficult to get enough of those Amy Butler fabrics. You are very industrious I must say, imagine making 1o things in 1 week. Really good on you. I agree with you; it is much easier to make items and have them ready to ship than do custom. Less pressure and I guess you can be more creative as well. Lovely. (BTW thanks for you comments on my blog; I'll send you an email).

Love the frocks! Wonderful fabric, too... and 10 items completed in 1 week!?! That's ambitious with little ones running about. I'd be jumping up and down if I completed 1 item a day!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love all your creative/crafty stuff. I have done a little knitting/sewing myself, but it just doesn't seem to "stick" with me. Your kids are sweet.

Hi! Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I have only started sewing and its lovely to see so many Mums making clothes for their children nowadays. I have to say your children tops are beautiful. I'm so tempted now. Just have to find out where to find children clothes pattern in London.

I adore your girl's clothing!!! I love Amy Butler's fabrics too... I'm making a quilt right now for our bedroom of so many different ones because I couldn't decide on just a few! Thanks for your comment on my blog the other day! And thanks for the heads up about the new RME thing... it's about time someone else came along!!
