Crazy How Things Just Fall into Place

This week, the Etsy shop ( has been visited by quite a few people. I guess the holidays get people out and into the cyber-world to do some of their shopping. I know that I did a bunch of our shopping online from a few choice sites.

Anyway, we were fortunate enough to have an individual come across our shop and inquire about making 18" doll dresses to match her local schools uniforms. Naturally, we said "No problem. When do you hope to have them in your shop?" After a few emails back and forth, we will start out with 15 dresses to be shipped ASAP. Sure, it's quite the order, but there are two of us doing the sewing and I will be cutting all of the fabric so that after this Saturday's craft show, we can pick a day and sit down at both of our machines and sew assembly line style (maybe). The best part is that this may just be the beginning with this particular boutique owner.

The dress sample turned out super cute! It needs to be tweaked a little bit, but I think mom really hit a home run when she altered a one of her patterns to get this just right. What do you think, did we get it (no, this is just the sample, the actual dresses will be in burgundy)?

The first photo is our 18" doll version and the second is the original uniform.
