Tatter Couture





Every once in a while I get so busy in the studio on private commissions that I don't get a lot of time to devote to my firstborn (my etsy online boutique! lol) This really begins to bother me after a short while as Ireally feel that the shop gets stagnant and all the wonderful gals who stop by from time to time must be feeling somewhat dissappointed when things don't get shaken up a little. Hence this cream tatter skirt was born.


I decided to step out of the studio deadlines for 1 day and devote my time to creating something new for my etsy shop. This had major theraputic value as it gave me a change from the run of dance costumes that I am currently buried under!! lol It also allowed me to add a change into the etsy shop which was beginning to show mould from sitting unattended for a long while!


Perhaps I could request an extra day in the week to devote purely to new and exciting projects to keep the my etsy presence fresh! ;)


xxxx

have a great week you guys.

Regal Victorian Tatter Cuff



This is the most recent cuff in my etsy boutique! I love the golden autumnal tones in this piece (even if I have missed the season by a mile!). I love the romantic nature of this one!


Lately I have been entertaining the idea of doing a big trunk show at the end of the year ( well lets face it a collection takes a lot of time to put together). Trunk shows are still very much an American phenomenon, but nonetheless for independent designers (such as myself) Ithink they are perfect!! Im still in the development stages, but certainly there is a little pep in my step about doing this event, so watch this space!

Keeping it in the family!!!




So this weekend I had a chance to head for my home town and give my Auntie a hand getting her very own etsy store up and running, called TheTailorsChest! It was so great to pass on the Etsy buzz to another person. In fact truth be told I think I may have created a monster!! ;) (The etsy obsession takes hold pretty fast guys!! lol)

Im LOVIN the hot red Valentines vibe from her listed items already! Rawk on girl, and check out her pieces here!
