I've been a bit behind on blogging recently, and I have a great reason for it. In between starting a new job at my church (more on that later!) and gearing up for a hopefully full photography season I decided to start an Etsy shop.
I have tried Etsy in the past before... mostly attempting to sell prints of my photography. I sold a few items, but it never really took off and I got discouraged.
Hopefully this time will be different :)
A bit of a background story: a few years ago I sewed some onesie dresses from vintage fabric for my soon-to-be God daughter. I thought about making them but it never really materialized, until I received an e-mail out of the blue last month. A woman had found the dresses on Pinterest and was interested in purchasing one.
Let's face it, self-promotion is kind of lame, so I understand if you'd rather click this window closed, but... I am excited about this new endeavor.
If you are interested here's a bit more on the dresses:
Right now I am using Carter's brand onesies from Target
They and the skirt fabric are all pre-washed
All skirt fabric is from vintage fabric that I find at thrift shops
Hugest, most humungous thank you to Katie for letting me take photos of sweet C in my dresses.
It was infinitely helpful to see them on a real baby and get a better sense for how to refine them.
And can you imagine a cuter model? I know I can't! Gah.
You can find my shop in the sidebar to the left and on Instagram @chintz_petit
