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!
This will be one of the next events I’ll be a vendor at! Purchase your tickets online, and “Git your gears to Giddings!”
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!
I’ve been accepted for the Austin Mini Maker Faire this year! Happening on Sunday, May 5, there will be a Steampunk area with several makers from the area!
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!
