I did something crafty!

OMG, I just can't believe this! I made something crafty!!! And I love it!

Making dresses turned out to be a little too complicated for my "working 9-5", schedule. I'm sorry but when I get home I just want to relax. So I decided to put the dress collection aside. Instead I invented a skirt...fine I saw a picture of it in a Elle magazine but it was 300$... a little too much for my budget! So what do you think? Should I make a few and sell them on Etsy for, I don't know, 50$ (shipping included)? Just an idea!

Gorgeous! I think $50 is a good price for that skirt.

I know just what you're saying about not feeling like crafting when you get home from work-- I'm in the same boat! By the time dinner is done and I've done something like laundry or errands, all I want to do is curl up and read. I'm hoping that will change, though! I'd love to get more sewing done.

Clo, I totally understand wanting to come home and have quiet. I always want to sew in the evenings, but somehow I tend to just chill on the couch.
I love the skirt and I like how you are thinking affordable as well as stylish.

Oh Clo it's lovely! I wish I was a skinny minny so I could sport this skirt and look dazzling, but alas.

I think selling htem on Etsy is a wonderful idea though :)
