During my first trimester of pregnancy, I literally sat on the couch and did nothing but the bare minimum of what life, and taking care of a toddler, required of me. However, all that sitting around did give me a lot of time to ponder and reflect on a lot of things– our shop especially.
Moment of truth:
The color block skirt holds such a special place in my heart as it is the first design I drew up and saw through to production. It is beautiful product, and I feel in awe at the wonderful reviews it has received by the many who have purchased it.
However, in the midst of all the time I had to ponder and reflect (when I wasn’t sleeping or feeling absolutely miserable) I started asking myself if it were someone else selling the color block skirt, would I buy it? As much as I would wish I could, being a stay-at-home mother of 1, soon to be 2, and a wife seeing her husband through graduate school on a modest income, I can honestly say that at this point in my life I would not.
In making this discovery, I suddenly realized that I have been largely overlooking the many other woman out there who are in a situation similar to my own—great admirers of beautiful things, but without the means to justify actually purchasing them.
This got me to thinking of how we could create a great product like the color block skirt for the everyday woman, that is also affordable.
In answer to this question we’d like to announce that starting in March (in addition to our custom listings) we will be selling ready-made, refashioned clothing. In our shop you will now find fashionable clothing for an affordable price, which have been recycled from thrifted clothes and fabrics. If you’ve been a follower of our blog, you’ve probably noticed that I have a great passion for refashioning old clothes into something new and modern. Please note that just because we are now selling refashioned clothing does not mean that we sacrifice the quality of our garments.
We already have a great selection of clothes waiting to go up in the shop and wanted to give you all a little sneak peak! I’m telling you guys, we have literally had to restrain ourselves from keeping these adorable clothes all for ourselves! We absolutely love what we’ve created and know you will too!
New items will start appearing in our shop starting March 2nd, so remember to keep checking back for all our newest additions. Each item is pre-made and ready to ship after purchase. If you see a style you love, but it’s not in your size be sure to let us know so we can keep our eye out for similar pieces.
We’ve also decided to start selling our popular Numbers Pouf which was featured in the Somerset Home magazine, also coming to the shop next month! Pick up one of these in our shop, or make one yourself following our step-by-step tutorial.
