Shop Jessthetics is Open!

It’s been kind of quiet around here this week. That’s because I’ve been busy getting ready to open my etsy shop! I’m really pleased with how it all looks, I think all the hard work I’ve put into it was worth it. Take a look and make sure you tell me what you think 🙂

An Announcement!

You guys, I have some exciting news! I’ve been doing a lot of sewing, and in mid May I plan to open an Etsy shop! I have been collecting second-hand and vintage fabric and sewing it up into these cute little elasticated waist skirts. I’ll be selling mini, midi and maxi varieties! The skirt above was the first one I made, and I just love the sixties fabric. It’s been so much fun having a big project like this to work on, and although I don’t expect to be making a living wage from selling on Etsy, it feels so good to be taking my employment into my own hands to some extent.

My yellow sewing machine makes sewing a lot more fun!

My fabric stash is getting a little out of control…

Just some of the beautiful fabrics that I’ve picked up this month

I have to say, it’s handy having an excuse to browse car boot sales and charity shops weekly, and I’m definitely getting to know my sewing machine a lot better (and it’s limitations – I wish it let me adjust the width of my stitches.) I’ll keep you updated with my progress, and when I expect to open. Wish me luck!
