polka dot skirt + brainmade online shop

I’ve had more free time lately, so I’ve been able to work on a few projects. A few are still in progress, but today I just finished my skirt!

I have a skirt from ASOS that I really liked and I wanted to recreate it. A while back when Joann’s Fabric in San Ramon was closing they had a 12 patterns for $2 sale so I hoarded a bunch of patterns, and found this great skirt pattern that was super similar. This is the outcome. It was my first time using a very thin fabric. One tip I have is to always use the right size needle, (size 9 for this) so that the fabric works well with it. There are some puckering effects that I’m not happy about but I just wanna twirl around in it so I stopped caring.
In other news, I re-opened my little shop. I haven’t had much time to promote it, but you can check it out here: http://brainmade.storeenvy.com¬†and shop. I only have a few goods on there right now, but plan on adding more and eventually promoting my store more… not sure how to go about that yet but we’ll see. But the big reason I opened my little shop is I got to sell my stuff at Turbo Tea Party in SJ. That was really fun! It motivated me to make more items and get more creative…I’ve developed a long laundry list of items to get through. Lots of drawings to make. Cheers for now.
