I think it is a pretty versatile fabric, as it can be worn in the fall with a little turtle neck,
or a nice little light weight top like the dotted Swiss one that is also in the shop.
I bought some beautiful Italian wool the other day to start on some fall/winter garments. I love this fabric store that I go to in Berkeley, because they have the most gorgeous fabrics from designers, and clothing manufactures, and they usually have really good prices, on these luxury fabrics. I'm excited to make some little jackets or vests with them.
Hard to think about woolens when it is so toasty outside though! I just don't want to be behind like I was last year. I'm really still feeling my way around with Etsy. I think it really takes time to figure out just how much you want to produce, and the time you want to put in it. The main thing is, that I like doing it at my own pace and not thinking I'm going to make a ton of money out of it. It just brings me joy to create little pieces of clothing, and for right now, that is OK.
Right now it is really fun coming up with the color story and the look of the pieces I want to make. I will start cutting into the wool this week, and start to shop for some more fall looking fabrics. Each season always brings a bit of excitement with big plans and ideas.
I'm sad that I didn't get to do all the summer ideas I had, but I guess I'll keep them for next year.
I'll be back soon with more photos of the fabrics and some fun ideas!!
