I went on a sewing spree for the past few months trying to get these skirts ready for this season of Sherwood Forest Faire! I started the season out with most of the skirts I wanted, save for all the potential colors of Linen Renaissance Long Skirts. Last week, we got a small photoshoot in of most of the new linen skirts! This week, I’m getting them up into the Etsy shop for made to order skirts, and will have them ready to ship once Sherwood wraps up for the year at the end of the month.
Also, I’ve been getting my vendor applications in for events this year, and I’m happy to say I’ll be at this year’s Austin Mini Maker Faire again and at Ama-Con 2014! I’m still looking into other events, and I’ll update the Vending and Events page with as I get my year planned out.
I can’t believe that Hallowe’en is so close now! Most people who know me have seen bits of my Hallowe’en sock collection, and I’ve gotten to add a few more to it so far, but I haven’t gotten to grab enough for the next year! Let’s face it, holiday socks tend to be cheaply made, and they get worn through fast! As for something that won’t wear through quickly…
I’ve started the new line of Linen Pixie Skirts! The first three are already available: Black, Natural, and Red. Soon to come will be Forest Green, Brown, Purple, and Burnt Orange. Not all of these will be pre-made for Hallowe’en this year, but if any of those colors interest you, message me about doing a custom order!
These skirts are made of a rayon/linen blend, and look absolutely amazing! Since they aren’t 100% linen, they don’t crinkle as badly and the drape is beautiful. The texture of this fabric will work perfectly for pirates, wenches, peasants, and gypsies. Of course they look stunning layered over long skirts or with other Pixie Skirts!
Find them in the Skirts section here on the site,
or visit the Skirts section of the Etsy shop!
I have been so terrible at updating. D: Okay so, in quick review:
New Pintuck Taffeta Skirts! Well, okay, it was only one, it just sold, and I don’t have any more of the fabric. …yet. I’m planning on having several color options of this skirt, but so far the price of the fabric is a little out of my range at the moment. I want them to be as affordable as I can make them, and not have my price set over $200. It might be a couple of months before I have another one made.
Ama-Con 2013! Ama-Con takes place in Amarillo, Texas. For those who have no idea where that is, it’s the largest town in the panhandle of Texas. Yes, there are far more cows surrounding the area than there are people living in the city, but no, there are no cattle drives going on through the town. It definitely isn’t the old west. As for cool events going on within Amarillo, there really isn’t much.
This was Ama-Con’s second year, and it was another great one day event! People do drive in from all around the area, even some from Oklahoma, New Mexico, and I think a few from Kansas attended as well. Kansas is definitely closer to Amarillo than where I live in Austin. I had a lot of items that I haven’t vended with before, mostly of the Pre-Loved variety. I’ll be adding what I have left onto Kitty’s Closet Sale in the next few weeks. I’ll also soon have a page for the glass bottles with the labels I’ve created. They make for great displays for Hallowe’en!
Now what’s next? I’ll be restocking as much of my handmade items as I can, trying to balance item making with my day job. I also have been taking several custom orders, including a wedding dress for a friend! I’m really excited about creating this dress, and I’m also hoping I haven’t gotten myself in over my head with it! We’ll see, and I hope to post progress reports on the dress as I go along. As for the next event I’ll be vending at, Sherwood Celtic Festival will be taking place on September 21 & 22!
These gorgeous Silk Underbusts with black flocked vine pattern have been added tonight! For those of you who’ve been by at Sherwood Forest Faire, you’ve seen the Gold Vined Underbust Corset on display with the Sage Green Mini Cloak and Pixie Skirt. Now you can get one for yourself, too!
Another year has gone by, and we’re in full swing for this year’s Sherwood Forest Faire season. Our shoppe number has changed, but our location has not! Iris Adornments and Apothecary is now Shoppe 120, still between the Greenwoode Theatre and the Seven Sisters Stone Circle.
The new Men’s Short Capes will be showing up at the Faire in several different color combinations! Those that aren’t snatched away will make their way online afterwards. New skirts, new Hair Jewels, and hopefully some Tattered Cuffs will be showing up at faire as well!
Steph and I spent the past weekend getting our final cleanup of the shoppe done, and we can’t wait for opening day on Saturday!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful, family filled Christmas! I’m spending the holidays with my family and friends, so all orders in my Etsy shop will ship after January 1st. I’m now accepting Direct Checkout through Etsy, which also means you can use your Etsy Gift Cards for all of my handmade wares!

There are a lot of new boots styles, which of course go amazingly with Steampunk themed outfits and make a great statement piece to your everyday wear.

Hi everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve made a post here, long enough that I don’t think I even made a deserving post for the new skirts. The latest news, of course, is that the site has been updated to be so much more awesome than before! Every item now how it’s own page to be viewed on, with multiple photo views, a description, and either a checkout button or a link to the purchase page.
