In a few weeks I'm going to be participating in this amazing trunk show at The Workroom. Look at those sellers! Look at what Celine is doing! It's going to be such a good one. More details here.
This time I will only have rummage available, because I am busy working on a special project that I am excited to share when it's ready. I am so tired, you guys.
The other night while falling asleep I had the idea (because the best ideas come near sleep, of course) that this time, I am not going to price anything. Make me an offer! Let's bargain, friends. Also, I'm going to put my cat love where my mouth is and donate 100% of the profits to Toronto Cat Rescue. So don't lowball too much, unless you hate cats.
I will be selling the usual: vintage clothes, maybe fabric, sewing supplies, books, knick-knacks. Come say hello!
Jane Flanagan: I think that usually it's all in our heads. We do these things to ourselves, and it's totally useless! Self-criticism is the pits, such a waste of energy.
Janelle: Thank you!
Neon Relish: I'm sure the Zara cat dress looks adorable on you. Oh, that hostess was so pretty and I loved her outfit! Serious envy over here. And thanks! It was actually not too difficult to make the skirt. It took me a lot less time than I thought it would. Other than the zipper having to go on one side of the pocket, it was pretty straightforward construction!
Beth: Oh wow, that's amazing! Yeah, those skirts are easy to make and easy to wear. Perfect! I haven't seen the... miniseries? I think it's a miniseries. I've heard good things about it, though.
nice-etc.com / caitlin: I wish I could to it! It would be fun!
liz: Thanks! I used a Simplicity pattern, one of the Project Runway ones. The instructions were confusing to me when it came time to sew in the zipper, but I just did my own thing and it worked out well.
erin: Ha, aw... well, you should learn! It's a pretty satisfying activity!
everyanything: I used this pattern for it. There may be others!
Nedda Ebo: Thank you!
erica-knits: Pfft, as if you have any reason to be self-critical. Don't do it! Confidence, confidence! Pockets are indeed the best. I love when I forget that I have them, then am surprised by them.
-Alaina: It's pretty, isn't it?
rennes le château: Haha, do you hear Mugatu saying it in your head, too? Thanks -- I'm so glad you agree about the hand stitched hems! It just looks so much cleaner to me. Although most of my clothes are machine-hemmed, of course!
CARLY WAITO: Thank you! That is such an amazing anecdote. I don't think I've seen Hair! I would probably like it. I can see you totally rocking the halter tops and sun dresses right now. Amazing!
Laura: Thank you!
Prosecco: Ha! I have such a hard time taking outfit pictures... but maybe one day. Thank you!
LyddieGal: Thank you! It sounds as though you have summer dressing down to an art. I struggle with it always!
Miss Cris: Oh, good luck with the dresses! How fun. Thank you!
Michelle: Haha, oh Zoolander. Yeah, I had a lot of fabrics to choose from! And so inexpensive. Pretty amazing!
Megan: Oh girl, if you learned to sew I bet your mind could come up with incredible things! I was just following directions (sort of).
