Contemplating Etsy!

As you all may know, I do have an Etsy website.  I haven't sold a thing on it, but that's understandable.  I only have a few things, they are very traditional in style and relatively easy for others to make on their own.  I did sell a few to friends, but that's about it.

However, I am contemplating selling my pillowcase dresses and maybe nursing covers on Etsy.  This weekend, I made seven dresses and one shirt for Lallie in a relatively short amount of time (about 2.5 hrs each on Saturday and Sunday).  I am also working on my own pattern of a semi-Lilly-esque shift dress with tie-backs and buttons on one of the sleeves.

Here are some pictures of what I made out of some leftover fabric I had lying around.  I haven't had my sewing machine in months, so I needed a little practice, but I think they all turned out pretty good.

What do y'all think?  Be honset please!  I would sell them for fairly inexpensively as they aren't difficult to make (for me as a sewer) and I anticipate a few mistakes, but nothing really visible.

If I decide against, at least Lallie will look cute in them!

And did you really think you'd get away without a picture of Lallie?  Here's my little prepster, getting ready for church. 

Happy Monday y'all!


  1. Ok pillow case dresses are the sweetest! I see little girls running all over in them in the summer around here! If I had little girls I would be sure to scopp some up from you!

  2. Your daughter is SUPER cute.

    And so are the pillow case dresses. My aunt makes them too and little girls just look like angels in them!

  3. Why can't my Miss Priss still be small enough to wear those! Way too cute!! xoxo

  4. I think your dresses are just precious!!

    I have ordered several off of eBay the past 2-3 yrs for my neices bdays. EVERYONE loves them!! I always would get white and coordinate the ribbon with monogram.

    Happy Monday!
