Thank you for all your kind words about the first skirt design I posted on Monday – this is the second skirt design. I guess you could kind of call it a puff skirt? This also doesn’t have any embellishments either, because I didn’t have enough fabric and it’s the same story with the bold pattern – it really doesn’t need too much extra.
It was originally a terribly made hand made skirt that was basically a strip of fabric with an elastic band threaded through the waist (which was really really twisted!!). So I cut it all up and started out fresh.
At this point I’m wondering whether I’m actually going to get all the stock finished and ready for the shop opening at the end of May. You see, we have a huge two week event in May and another smaller one straight after which means my nights and weekends will soon be slightly busier than they have been of late. So, while I still aim to have the shop open at the end of May, I may need to push that date back, I don’t want to rush everything and forsake the quality of my items in the process. Making things to sell takes much more time than making something for me to wear, because I want it to be perfect!!
Any way, I have a small set of questions about my first two designs available if you want to help me out with any constructive criticism. Please just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll flick them to you! You can answer with as much or as little detail as you like!!
