I have a confession to make...

I have an addiction. To sewing! :D Especially historical costumes! (I'll post about my next grand costume in a later post. I still need to get pictures) So without further ado...
Sense and Sensibility patterns is having a give-away! To enter I have to decide on a favorite pattern. Oh dear. Which one? How on earth am I to decide?! Fine. I'll be decisive. My favorite pattern is the 18" dolls regency dress pattern. Now that I think of it, that really was a no brainer. I've made so many regency dresses for dolls now, that I have the pattern memorized (I can probably do it in my sleep...) And have figured out some super cute alterations to it as well!

It's :almost: official!

Well... I'm almost officially open for business! A nearby store is allowing me to sell my doll dresses in her shop, and I need to get everything ready to go to get my business out of the 'dream' stage. :D

Business cards - almost check. Price tags - check. Doll dresses - you bet it's a check! I have a whole box full of dresses! Website - Do I need to have one? Hmm... Business name - 'Pintucks and Pinafores.' I'm forgetting something... Ooh! A logo! Here's what I've come up with:

You likes? For some odd reason I have this strange obsession with vintage dress forms. So why not incoperate that into my business! It didn't take to long to draw by hand, but trying to get it into the computer was another story... None of the scanners in the house were cooperating with me. And then I had to edit it. Again, computers and I don't get along. ;) Stay tuned for more updates!
