After a few naps both Saturday and Sunday, I finally feel caught up enough to start a new project, my mom's late mother's day gift. I finished the dresses Thursday morning complete with hang tags designed, printed, and pinned by my adorable husband, and in just enough time to run them over before the doors opened at 10am. Had I spent more time thinking instead of sewing, I would have done many things differently including a better presentation, but her banister did the job, and sold several dresses to nearby neighbors and friends.
I made several sizes but stopped at 5T. I had a few requests for sizes up to 8, so again I called upon my husband to draw up some order forms and a fabric sample sheet.
Had I stopped there, my weekend wouldn't have felt so exhausting, but I felt the boutique had a serious void of little boy goods, so I spent Friday night sewing up ties.
Lots of work, but a great experience is how I would sum this one up. Just the kick I needed to jump start the shop. I plan on opening next Thursday the 17th. It will be stocked with several smocked dresses, ties, and other goods to choose from, so be sure to check back!
