Etsy Front Page And New Products!

I am was so excited to be on the front page of Etsy a couple of days ago. My shop views in that day alone were over 4,500,  and this is with only 128 items in my shop. I also packed up and shipped out my first wholesale order to Texas this weekend. I can't wait to hear how my things are received in Texas, I think it will do well!

This is the skirt that was on the front page of Etsy, this has been my second time being on the front page, and it is such an exhilarating feeling!

I had January goals for my shop and so far I have met most of them, and there are still 11 days to go. My goals were to have 1000 Facebook fans (done), have 1000 shop admirers (done), make it to 200 sales (I am currently at 195), and get 150 items listed in my shop (I am currently at 130). I am just so excited about all of this.

So, during the past week while I have not been updating my blog,  I listed these garments.

This is an ivory and damask dress, that I LOVE! I actually bought this fabric to make a belt, and after seeing it I quickly ordered about 6 more yards. I think it is just so gorgeous. I also have this same dress already cut out for girls that I need to sew together. So, I will also be adding this dress in another mother daughter set.
  This black and white chevron tunic I made as a custom order for one of my customers. I just loved it so much I decided to put it on a dress form, take pictures, and list it in my shop. It has already proven very popular with selling 2 in the past week.

Here is another funny story. I was going to make this little girls dress very simply. In my design process I apparently sewed on the the wrong skirt pieces that made the dress to short. I did not want to take it all apart again, so to add length I made a yellow ruffle to place at the bottom. I actually think it turned out way better than my original plan!

With my leftover black chevron I made a classic A-line shirred waist skirt. These skirts are so comfortable and cute!

 And that is where I am in my shop. There are a lot more exciting things coming up that I will update soon!
