Lately I've been thinking about setting up an online store, never to seriously though, and a few days ago I decided I was going to do it. Of course It wasn't as easy as I imagined it would be, first I have to choose a site that I can sell things on for free without any of the profits being taken. That wasn't so easy but I did find one that allows me to sell 5 items at a time, for no cost. If this actually goes well, I'll see where I can go with it. After setting up a paypall account, deciding what I was ready to sell, ordering packing boxes, finding shipping and handling rates, taking pictures of items, and putting the finishing touches on them, MY STORE IS FUNCTIONAL!
Below are the items that are currently for sale at
Slouchy Sweater Tunic! 15.00
Lighting Bolt Earings! 10.00
Plaid Jumper! 20.00

Two for One

So, obiviously, I haven't written in a while. However maybe this post will make it worth it? I've been working on a lot of designs recently while setting up a portfolio. These two dresses are my most recent designs.
Outfit details:
necklace-chain, buckle- cameo, grandmas
sunglasses-3rd grade halloween costume
For this dress I used my mom's old quitling fabric (the pink I found in the barn) to create the double layered skirt. Next I cut the center out of a discarded plain white tee as an under layer for the top. I then sewed a lace table cloth centerpiece that i bought for 50 cents around the tee and attatched to the skirt, creating this semi-formalish dress.
Outfit details:
purse,. shoes, belt-thrift
anchor necklace-ebay

This dress actually took me about 3 hours to make. Which for me, is a lot. The blue top is made from a curtain that I sewed together up the middle and across. After sewing, I drew a shirt outline in chalk and cut it out and made it wearable. I then created a skirt from fabric with a wide hem and attached it to the top adding a waistband to the inside of the dress. Next I cut a strip of fabric to run up the center of the top and finished it off with lace up the sides.

P.S. 2 days until I am offically a high school senior, and it's summmmmer!
