The Patterns are coming....

May 12, 2010

There's something I've been working on for some time now. With everything on my plate it's taken a little longer than I anticipated but it's really turned into a labor of love. So say if I were starting an etsy shop, which ones would you choose first?

OhhooOOHhh.. pretty much any of your women's dresses. I'm on a "sew for me since I don't play in the mud and ruin all the hard work" kick. :D

inday_adin said... Best Blogger Tips

I love this dress and the color! :)

derrickandamy said... Best Blogger Tips

Just found your blog a week or so ago, and love it. So, EVERY. SINGLE. ONE!

Katydid said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow! I just found your blog and I love it! My favorite patterns would be the Paper Cranes Dress and the Peppermint Stick Dress. Those aren't their names, but those are the photography props in the picture.

saadia said... Best Blogger Tips

The social darling frock for sure

Mindy said... Best Blogger Tips

How can I choose just one! They are all so beautiful. If I had a little girl I would definitely choose one of those, but I don't. So I would have to choose the State fair frock.

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

limoncello
social darling

those are my top 3. i love your childrens designs but it is so hard to find great designs for myself!

juste venteux said... Best Blogger Tips

hopscotch cami, the state fair frock, it's my party skirt, and stolen from your sister's closet frock. I could go on but I'd just up listing them all!

Ashley said... Best Blogger Tips

love the Oh Dear Frock and the Peppermint stick.

Love your blog! I just started sewing earlier this year (something I've wanted to learn for a very long time) and REALLY enjoy it. My hope is to one day make my own patterns.

Red said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, exciting! I would definitely buy one of your patterns!
One of my favorites was the 'Vintage refashioned wedding frock'.

Summer Lewis said... Best Blogger Tips

The hop, skip, and a jump maternity dress. Really any of your maternity stuff because I can never seem to find flattering, modern maternity patterns.

Megan said... Best Blogger Tips

The Social Darling Frock!

Trisha said... Best Blogger Tips

I vote for the picnic frock-- both the dress and the slip underneath.

Joey and Laura said... Best Blogger Tips

I'd probably go with the indian summer skirt first.

Mandee Jo said... Best Blogger Tips

Any of your dresses, adult or child. Right now I could use a maternity dress but I love the dress you made for shabby apple.

ApachesPrincess said... Best Blogger Tips

I would love to buy a pattern for your Romance Novel Blouse!

I also would snatch up patterns for these gorgeous pieces:
Limoncello Frock
PettiSkirt
Paper Crane Frock (my favorite)
The conservatory overcoat

Thanks :)

Amy said... Best Blogger Tips

Looking forward to the eight o'clock frock, limoncello dress, and the state fair frock, pretty much in that order. Can't wait! Congrats on this big venture--your stuff is great!

Megan said... Best Blogger Tips

The Ice Cream Social dress!!!!!

ApachesPrincess said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh! I must add the Downtown Holiday Jacket and the gorgeous Fancy Field Frock! I can't wait!

k:io said... Best Blogger Tips

That's quite hard to decide, they are all soooo beautiful, maybe the Limoncello Frock and the State Fair Frock would make a nice start??

Lindsay said... Best Blogger Tips

think I would pick the conservatory over coat or the picnic frock first. I also really enjoy the "stolen from your sister's closet" dress.

kathy said... Best Blogger Tips

Social Darling!!!

Katie said... Best Blogger Tips

Social darling frock! :)

Also limoncello

Rachael said... Best Blogger Tips

I absolutely LOVE:
Conservatory Overcoat
Downtown Holiday Jacket (kids)
Social Darling Frock
8 O'clock Frock
Estate Sale Blue Blouse (kids)

Ruhammie said... Best Blogger Tips

I really like the Anthropology inpired top you title Busty Bust and the Limoncello Frock for me. And I LOVE all the costumes you made the girls, especially the Marie
Antionette one, but I have boys, so really, I don't think that I would buy them.

Sinta Renee said... Best Blogger Tips

I am a wanna be seamstress... I love what you make. I drool over them all and wish they were available... .looks like a wish is coming true! I love OH DEAR. Adorable. I love your "green" dress also... you have a wonderful style!!!

kelliemorgan said... Best Blogger Tips

State Fair, Stolen from My Sister's Closet, and Cherry Pop. Amazing!

Chandlers said... Best Blogger Tips

Absolutely the Sunday laundry shirt dress. It is beautiful. Actually, any of your women's dresses. They are darling.

Kathy said... Best Blogger Tips

I love them all. I mean, love. If you were to do patterns, I would certainly buy.

I personally love the little girl dresses. I find that the patterns in the big box stores are often the same pattern with a little trim here and there. Your items are unique. You definitely have a market.

kelliemorgan said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, and the Conservatory Overcoat and Laundry Dress. Amazing.

Emily said... Best Blogger Tips

Yeah! So excited! Milk and Honey maternity frock, cherry pop frock, limoncello frock, social darling frock, hop, skip, and a jump maternity frock, dinner party frock, fancy field frock- just to name a few!

Mahana said... Best Blogger Tips

1. Social Darling.
2. Picnic Frock Shirt dress
3. Sunday Laundry

In reality I love them all.

Any chance that you might make and sell the actual dress too????? please oh please.

The Rowleys said... Best Blogger Tips

I would buy the social darling frock in a second! I LOVE it and was so sad that I missed that giveaway. I would definitely buy that pattern!!

Theresa said... Best Blogger Tips

oh my goodness! This is so exciting! Please do the Ice Cream Social Frock. I have three girls and am dying to sew that for all three of them in different colors. I thought about doing it on my own but I just don't know how to proceed without a pattern. Also, there is another dress I'd love to do. I know you are always looking for ideas. The Denim Dream Dress at Chasing Fireflies: http://www.chasing-fireflies.com/denim-dream-dress/productinfo/27882/. It is $98. Who can afford that? It doesn't look too hard, but again, without a pattern, I don't even know where to start.

Emily G. said... Best Blogger Tips

all of them but maybe these first: social darling, hop skip and jump maternity and Limoncello

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

My vote is for the picnic frock you posted quite a while back. I can't find the link for it right now, but it is so cute and I haven't seen similar patterns elsewhere.

Gillian said... Best Blogger Tips

Hop, skip and a jump, and Cherry pop are lovely.

*Emy said... Best Blogger Tips

Without a doubt I would LOVE to recreate CHERRY POP!!!

Also you once did a cardigain/cover up that had 3 tiers of ruffles and your pictures seemed to be in a bar. I don't see it in the pictures but I have always admired that piece!

Leah said... Best Blogger Tips

I am not sure that I could pick just one. I really like all of your dresses. I would like to see the downtown jacket and pants and the stolen from your sisters closet dress.

Charlotte said... Best Blogger Tips

oooooh fun!!!

State Fair, Cherry Pop, Paper Cranes, & Lawn Frock all all amazing and I would totally make them just for me to wear. :)

Miss Prickly said... Best Blogger Tips

The Summer of '69 dress!

Life as I know it said... Best Blogger Tips

So hard to choose!!! I really like the marie antionette or the fancy field frock!

Elizabeth said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the pinstripe maternity dress. I'm not pregnant, but I just can't help myself...I'd buy it anyway!

Miss Pelicano said... Best Blogger Tips

I think I'd choose the State Fair Frock first. I've had my eye on it for a while now!... But there is so so many beuatiful things here, it's quite hard to choose! lovely!

Kimmy Findlay said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Kathleen - all your creations are super wonderful, but i love the State Fair Frock :D

Jessica said... Best Blogger Tips

I would buy Peppermint stick and cherry pop in a second. Really I'd buy almost any of them!

Ashley said... Best Blogger Tips

um, one of each please? :)

to start with:
Blueberry Pie
Twinkle Little Star
State Fair

~Ashley

britt said... Best Blogger Tips

the yellow floral vintage looking dress! gorgeous. but i can't wait...you are really opening an etsy shop!!

helen ethel studio said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, the State Fair Frock. I just adore it. Congratulations on the opportunity to share your lovely patterns with the masses. I just discovered your blog and I am so happy that I did!

Maggie said... Best Blogger Tips

You have made so many gorgeous things!

My votes would be for:
Sunday laundry dress
Downtown holiday jacket and pants

But any of them would be great!

pequenita1 said... Best Blogger Tips

I love your style - especially for little girls. I have 3 little girly girls and you wouldn't think it would be this hard to find sweet classic girls dresses and patterns - but it is. My favorite girl dresses are:
Garden Party Frock
Fancy Field Frock
Boardwalk Blue Stripe Frock
Recital Frock
I also love the Limoncello Frock. Who wouldn't?

Angela said... Best Blogger Tips

The Lunch Date blouse and the Conservatory Overcoat get my vote!

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

social darling

tina said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the social darling dress or it's my party! skirt for adults!!

Emily said... Best Blogger Tips

It occurred to me (in the middle of the night after feeding my baby-ha) that you might look into big cartel instead of etsy. They don't charge any fees (though paypal still charges fees) like etsy (.20 cent listing fee, plus a transaction fee for each item sold). You can also keep track of your inventory (ie 10 patterns in stock) without paying for each item listed (etsy charges per item). I'm not anti etsy (I'm on etsy myself). I'm so excited you're doing this!

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

State Fair Frock- in a heartbeat!

Kara said... Best Blogger Tips

I have to say my all time favorites are the hopscotch camis and the make believe frock. I would love to make either one for my daughter!

tong said... Best Blogger Tips

I LOVE all of your designs, but a few really stand out for the rest for me: The Hop, Skip and a Jump Maternity Frock, The State Fair Frock, Picnic Frock, and Sunday Laundry Shirt Dress. Looking forward to the new dress patterns that *may* become available!!

Casey said... Best Blogger Tips

Couldn't go wrong with any of them, but my personal favorites are the 8'oclock frock, the cherry pop refashion, and the summer of 69 dress!

prim.rose said... Best Blogger Tips

all of them! ;-) oh dear and both of the shabby apple dresses are on the top of my list, though.

Elizabeth said... Best Blogger Tips

the green "lawn frock" you did for shabby apple!

charisse said... Best Blogger Tips

summer 69 is darling. Of course I don't know if it's the pattern of the dress or the pattern of the fabric.

Marybeth said... Best Blogger Tips

So hard to pick just a few - they're all sooo beautiful... I love the Summer of 69 dress, the Peppermint Stick Holiday Dress and the State Fair Dress...

Ribbons Undone said... Best Blogger Tips

How about some "novice" patterns for those of us who are starting out? And petites PLEASE--I am RTW 00P. Yes, there are a few people that petite!

Joanna said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, they are all so lovely, but my favorites are:
1. Social Darling Frock
2. Limoncello Frock
3. Hop, Skip, and Jump Maternity Frock

Joanna said... Best Blogger Tips

the yellow one with pintucks on top...or the blue one with red bias binding...LOVE!

Faye Lewis said... Best Blogger Tips

The 8 0'clock frock.

Jen Schumann said... Best Blogger Tips

The Lawn Frock!

Peacock Chic said... Best Blogger Tips

ALL OF THEM! PLEEEAASE!! You will have a dedicated customer in me!

Ingunn said... Best Blogger Tips

They are all beautiful. But if I had to pick one, I'd take the yellow one in jersey (?) with rolled collar.

Tania Ho said... Best Blogger Tips

Definitely the Limoncello frock ! Oh, and the Oh Dear frock as well :)

Karin (the Mrs.) said... Best Blogger Tips

ohh, euh, Limoncello. Definitely. Or the lawn frock. And.. and.. and...

Can't you make patterns for all your dresses? They are all so gorgeous!

kirsten said... Best Blogger Tips

Well, the list goes on... the cherry pop, the state fair, the sunday laundry dress, the lemoncello, and the oh dear. I'm sure I'll come up with a few more I can't live without. I can hardly wait for the patterns!!

Elizabeth said... Best Blogger Tips

I would buy any and all of these:

Oh Dear
State Fair
8 O'Clock
Limoncello
Picnic

Hopefully in a large range of sizes, so plus size seamstresses can make these gorgeous dresses also!

Janice said... Best Blogger Tips

The yellow one with pintucks!

This one:

:)

robin said... Best Blogger Tips

The Lunch Date Blouse and the Paper Crane Dress, please!

JillyB said... Best Blogger Tips

So tough to pick!! 8 o'clock and limoncello are the first two that come to mind, though limoncello looks pretty tricky for me.

Audie said... Best Blogger Tips

I would definitally buy ANY of your adult patterns (when I have kids it would change to any of them) My favorite (it was VERY difficult to choose) was the Picnic Dress...only because I don't have many summer cloths.

Huan-Hua said... Best Blogger Tips

wow, i would buy so many of these. in order:
1) state fair frock
2) limoncello
3) hop, skip, and jump (would a non-maternity version be possible?)
4) social darling frock

Stacy Marie said... Best Blogger Tips

The idea of you doing patterns TOTALLY MAKES MY DAY! I would keel over dead out of happiness if you had a pattern for the Social Darling dress...but whatever you choose I will be delighted.

Kylar said... Best Blogger Tips

OH My LAWS!! I think this is my absolute favorite thing I have ever read!! EVER! I've been hoping you'd sell your patterns for a long time! I think I need the Indian Summer one immediately! It's perfect for work and I desperately need new work clothes! Also my all time favorite dresses are the Social Darling and the Hop, Skip and a Jump (too bad I'm not pregnant!) Thank you soo much!!

Mortadella said... Best Blogger Tips

Social Darling
Summer of 69
Cherry Pop

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

The picnic frock! It's gorgeous.

lyndsi said... Best Blogger Tips

the "oh dear" frock gets my vote. hands down. although ALL your dresses are FABULOUS!

martina said... Best Blogger Tips

I'd immediately buy the Patterns for the Limoncello Frock and the Picnic Frock. I absolutely love them!!

Amanda said... Best Blogger Tips

Social Darling frock! Please. I still get teary-eyed over the fact that I didn't win that one.

cidell said... Best Blogger Tips

No contest- the social darling frock is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen! I wish I could purchase the pattern today.

Wurtz Gang said... Best Blogger Tips

I would absolutely love if some of the ones available were yoiur laundry shirt dress, the picnic frock, garden party dress for little girls, as well as the hop skip jump dress. I swoon everytime I look at these. You are truely an inspriation!

Hella said... Best Blogger Tips

If you're going to open an etsy-store, I would like to buy first the "state-fair-frock-grosgrain-giveaway". I like the blue denim with the red lines. I'm looking forward to buy this pattern on etsy!!

Jaimielee said... Best Blogger Tips

SUNDAY LAUNDRY! I fell in love with it on Burda Style, that's actually how I found your blog in the first place.

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh I just love love love your dresses. The ones I would choose first are:

the oh dear frock
the sunday laundry shirt dress
the cherry pop frock
the social darling frock
and I was going to say the... wait I'm not going to say it's name, you might count it (it's yellow though :))... but I'm a total beginner and I think it would be too hard for me, I'd probably choose not to make the dress if you made the pattern for a harder dress first.

sarah said... Best Blogger Tips

All Of your dresses are lovely! I think the State Fair Frock was my favorite....

lholy-chan said... Best Blogger Tips

Your clothes are lovely! I'd love to have the Conservatory Overcoat available as a pattern. I saw it a while ago and loved it, and I still love it today. I also like the Social Darling Frock and Oh Dear Frock very much and can see myself wearing those.

JenH said... Best Blogger Tips

State Fair and 8 O clock Frock...but they are all great!

Sabr said... Best Blogger Tips

The reporter frock and the picnic frock are two of my favs, but really all your designs are quite charming. Can't wait to have access to the patterns!
