Well, I know I hinted about updating the shop on Wednesday, but I went ahead and added things last night. The entire process for this update has taken so long and I've worked very hard. Not a day went by without me working away on a pattern. It's been over two months of constant tweaking, changing, throwing ideas out and welcoming new ones in, searching for just the right fabrics, and finally the testing (oh, that muslin...).
I hope these new items reflect the growth I've made with my sewing. Most of the patterns were from scratch, the others inspired by vintage patterns. The patterns took me the longest. I made up to five test pieces for a single pair of pants before I found the perfect fit. It was exhausting, but very rewarding in the end.
The little one graciously allowed me to try each item on her and snap away with my camera. (Of course, the animal cookies helped too.) So I have an actual child modeling my clothing! It's nice to see them in action and I think adds some playfulness to my shop. Each item is made to order, which is something I haven't done before, but I think it is a more practical process.
I have two more items I am adding this week, and more to follow! I'm thinking hard about some tops more suited to the little lads. So please keep checking back. I'll probably make a small announcement here when I do. Please hop on over to my shop and let me know what you think!
