Hope your all well and dandy!
Its been a busy few weeks of sewing & knitting & all things nice around here.
I have been plotting & scheming around online ventures too!
In Sewing news...
I have been playing around with some fabric dyes.
Using an ombre technique that I found online... somewhere...
I started with my favourite olive tones and have since tried red, navy & even bright pink.
|just hanging around with my dummy (Still unnamed! scandalous!!!)|
This is the result of the first dye. Made up into a simple circle skirt.
It has a mustard coloured voile underskirt and invisible hand stitching (The whole inside of the waistband!) to create a clean look on the outside.
It has an invisible side zipper and a hook & eye to finish. I made it using a good quality medium weight gabardine, ombre dyes & plenty of LOVE of course..
All in all it cost around $60 to make. Sheesh...
I was wanting to put a few of these in my new Etsty Store in every colour of the rainbow! So...
Questions for you, dear readers:
Do you think that these are sellable?
How much would you pay for one of these handmade/hand dyed skirts?
How would you photography them? (They really don't look as nice in the pictures!)
Any other thoughts/tips/ideas/input...
Things that have helped your own etsy/ebay etc. stores??
I'm in desperate need of your input and ideas :-)
Or tell me if it is ridiculous too! HA
In the meantime, I have been perusing all of your blogs
Have fun and stay stitching!!!
