It's been a long time since I made kids clothes. For retail sale anyway. I have always made clothes for my girls. Not so much for Tori anymore, as she is 10 now and it's just not "cool". Plus she is kind of a tom-boy so that fluffy frilly shit has no place in her closet.
Lex on the other hand is totally a girly-girl. Her clothes can't have enough ruffles on them. The fluffier the better! So I have really enjoyed making clothes for her. And she loves to have input on building a new outfit. She has a great eye for what kids will love.
Back to what I was saying... It's been a long time since I developed any children's clothing for retail sale. I used to make kids boutique clothing on a custom order basis many years ago. It became quite a chore to keep up with orders. And then it became more like "work" than fun. So I kind of backed off that end of my business.
Now my kids are older. Lex will be going to school in the fall, and I feel like I have more time during the day. Still not enough time to do everything I want to do. But it's so much better than when Lex was a baby. So last month I started developing a new spring line of children's clothing. I only have the 4 girls outfits ready for orders right now. But I am planning a boy's line and a few more girls sets too.
Now I have to get them up onto the website. Have I ever mentioned that I hate the web part of this business. I would much rather just sit in the studio and sew. I put some one eBay (evil I know) and Etsy. Now I have to work on the business site. URG!
Anyway, here is a preview of the outifits I made. Lex is totally in love with all but one. She is not a fan of the green sage and eyelet dress. I think she feels it's to formal for her. I should have them up on the website by the end of the week. www.syhocustoms.com
