My Etsy Shop

Good morning y'all!

I've come to a decision about my Etsy shop and I've decide not to re-open. 
(Keep reading though).

Reasoning?   

Well, most of the things I make are too darn cute for Lallie not to wear!  :-)  I'm working on Christmas and Thanksgiving dresses, skirts and shirts and I just don't want to give them up! 

But the other reason is I just don't have time to build up an inventory.  What am I going to do?  Put one dress and skirt on the site and hope someone buys?  Not great marketing.  In addition, I'm not one to buy a whole bolt of fabric.  I choose what I like in just enough fabric to give me variety for Lallie's closet and that's it.  I don't have enough customers (or money!) to buy a full bolt and just hope someone wants me to make something in that fabric.

So what does that mean for y'all?  I will customize design and make whatever you want.  We can just go over it via email and pick out designs and patterns etc. etc. etc.  It's super easy and that way I can make items for the few of you that have bought from me before and not worry about dealing with the masses. 

After all I do really enjoy sewing but it's not my full time job.

Sew....(pun intended)....what do I have in the pipelines for Lallie?  I recently completed her Christmas dress and she'll wear it in her Christmas pictures this coming Friday.

It's a reversible A-Line dress with a white frock to go underneath.  Monogrammed on one side with rick rack trim....the other side simple with a cute little pocket (and Lallie LOVES pockets!)
If interested in this style, email me at SLPreppy@gmail.com!



Happy Tuesday Y'all!

  2. Amazing! You are one very talented chick! I like that you still will be available for custom orders. If I had little ones (pipe dream) they'd be decked out in a SLP orginal.

  3. If only I had a little girl! And I wish we lived closer so you could show me how to do all of this.

  4. Love love love!! Such adorable stuff! I don't blame you for closing your etsy shop. I sew for my daughter too and I barely have enough time to just get stuff for her done. So much fun to have a sewing talent and a little model to make things for :)
