Pants and a Plan
I've paired the jeans with one of the tops that will be available.
This is another blouse with bell sleeves.
The blouse was originally paired with a black skirt. I posted this on the Dasia Facebook fan page, but this is the first time shown here.
THE PLAN: (Setting expectations)
So the plan is to start listing items for Dasia, in my Etsy store, this weekend. I will be offering just about everything you've seen so far, and I will be creating new items every week. Even though I will be pairing tops and bottoms, you will be able to buy them as separates. Initially, I will be sewing made to order, with the intent of getting orders shipped out within 7 - 10 days. Some items will have velcro and some will have snaps. It will just depend on what works best for the garment. I used to be anti-velcro, but I've invested in some really thin velcro that is perfect for doll clothes. I also wanted to be able to offer clothes at a decemt price. So this makes that possible. Moving forward I will also offer more high-end clothing using more couture sewing techniques. Of course this will equate to higher prices. Most pieces will be limited because I am limited by the amount of fabric I have. A lot of this fabric is from my current stash and can not be restocked. So if you see something you really like.... As time goes by, I will get better at the little details, like packaging. So bear with me. When I sold doll clothes before, it was from a storefront, so I didn't have to worry about shipping.
A look at the blouse with the velcro closing.
See how thin it is. You can't even see it from the side.
