come sail away

I'm getting ready to list some vintage clothing on Etsy this weekend; a couple of blouses, a couple of dresses, two pairs of shoes -- not too many things. Originally I was going to list this dress too. When I brought it home, it was almost ankle-length, and really frumpy. Since I unexpectedly had the day off today, I took the time to hem it. Hemming chiffon isn't too fun! Now that it's cut above the knee, however, I can't bear to part with it! It's so pretty and spring-like. And it's from a petites line so the waist hits me in the right place. Yay!

I also hope to have a few handmade items for the Etsy shop soon. Geoff will have some handpainted ceramics, and I'll have a variety of cotton lawn things (needlebooks, neckties, skirts, totes, and maybe a dress or two!). Oh and some embroidered doily drawings.

Enjoy your weekends! It's so warm out, it's fantastic.

    it was worth the trouble.

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing all the new things you'll have for the shop! Especially the pretty cotton lawn patterns that you had in your needlebook post before.
