The Ultimate decision…..

So wouldn’t you know it, that once I make it official that I am going to release a dress on Sundays, I don’t have one to show.   I do have a great excuse though.  Due to the weather last week, I really had to finish up some orders.

Designing dresses really is a lot of fun.  The only time I run into problems is when I feel like I have a deadline.  Nothing is fun when you have an approaching deadline.   The stress and pressure just mounts with each passing hour.  I finally decided that I would put together a new dress, and if I did not finish by Sunday, then so be it.  I spent about 2 1/2 hours dragging fabrics in and out of rooms, finally putting together what I thought would be an interesting mix.


Beautiful fabrics.  So girly, so beautiful.  I really really loved this combination.  That is what needs to happen when you design something.  Now I had to decide on a pattern………and that my friends was the end of the story.  It was just not going to happen.  I  was stuck.  After about 90 minutes, I knew I had five options…….


The classic design (#1) was my best seller, followed by the peasant dress.  I wanted to make the flutter dress (#4), but I loved #5.  I finally decided to let my fans on FACEBOOK decide.   I really had fun watching as the numbers came in.  I even got a few orders waiting.  So many people participated, and I was not expecting that at all.  In the end, #5 got the most votes, followed by #3 (totally unexpected), and then #1.  The peasant dress came in last.   Interesting……..very interesting.

On Sunday morning, I counted the votes, and went straight to work.  I decided right then and there, to make at least a few of the styles in order to give my customers some options.  Why not, right.  These fabrics were so pretty that it would be a shame not to make lots of pretty things.  Why settle only for one design?  I think you will like the pictures of this new dress……you will just have to wait to see them.
