In January I was unsure of what would happen with my business because of the CPSIA law so I did not offer to create any new pioneer outfits. The bill has been amended and it is time to return to business.
I have decided to cut back a little on my sewing this year because of many projects around the house that require my attention. My husband suggested a good way to build an inventory while creating custom outfits would be to cut out 2 outfits at a time. Whenever someone ordered a custom outfit I would cut it out along with another one in the same size. What a great idea!! Isn’t he brilliant!
So today I cut out 2 outfits. These are the fabrics I used, both of them are perfect for springtime. The lavender is being created for a little sweetie in California. Her mom, Christal, also ordered her a matching doll outfit.
The lavender is one of my all time favorites for the “Little House on the Prairie” outfits. It is top quality, a beautiful print and washes up really nice-needs almost no ironing.
The pink is a new fabric I found with black highlights and outlines. It is also a very nice weight fabric and will make a really nice Laura Ingalls outfit.
Both of these are all cut out and tomorrow I begin the process of assembling them.
