The last few weeks have been crazy, I got so many orders for capes & a few clothing orders that I actually had to CLOSE my Etsy shop! I got all my capes finished up & shipped out last week, so this weekend & today I finished up the 2 custom tunic & legging sets that I had orders for.
This first one is the same Miss Madeline dresses, modified to tunic tops, as I made for twins but in a size 6-12m. I literally had it 95% complete & found to small red dye spots that were oops from the print process when the fabric was made! None the less I had to tear it half apart & was lucky I was able to fix it because I only had a small amount of fabric left. The capri leggings are the same fitted leggings that I made for the twins but with 2 rows of ruffles added to the bottom. It is the first time I have made leggings like these & they turned out super cute, so I plan on making more! I also made a matching black headband, but didn’t get a picture of it.
This 2nd set was a custom order, the customer told me she really liked some of Heather Bailey’s more retro styled flower fabrics. I couldn’t find the exact print she liked but I found this one & a coordinating fabric and really like how it turned out! The tunic top is the same modified Miss Madeline. The capri’s are just my fitted capri leggings. Then I took pictures of the matching headband I made for this set! I really like these headband & plan on making some for myself.
Well this will likely be my only post this week. This weekend is my local twin/multiples club clothing & equipement sale. Since the twins managed to outgrow their 2T stuff in less then 4 months plus I have all their summer clothes from last year & my son FINALLY outgrew 3T I have a ton of stuff to price, hang & pack up!
If you are in the Seattle area or know someone who is that might be interested please spread the word!
