Sharing my dresses with you!!

Update: All the dresses have gone to reader homes!

I've never done this before!!

Many times I've had readers ask if I do custom sewing, or could make them a version of a dress I've blogged about in a custom size. I've never done it, and aside from costuming a few plays and making my bridesmaids' dresses and some little girl clothes, unfortunately I've kept almost all my creations for myself. I'd love to make things for other people, but it's never penciled out for me to do custom sewing at reasonable prices, and I don't have a ton of time these days for sewing everything I come up with...

But, we're moving next month (cannot wait to share house pics and news! We will have our work cut out for us!), and I'm cleaning out the closets and getting rid of things around the house. I have quite a few dresses (as evidenced by the partial dress gallery I've made), and... I don't wear all of them. I started pulling out dresses to give to Goodwill and realized, hey, these are some GREAT dresses!! I want them to go to someone who will appreciate them!

I hope some of you readers are interested. I don't want any money for them, other than to cover the cost of shipping unless you live around Portland and want to pick one up. Please take a look through these 9 super cute, well made, fun and playful dresses and send me an email to reserve the one (s) you want!! Most of them have only been worn once or twice.

Dresses for the taking!

So, here are the dresses. Check out the dress gallery for more photos/How to Wear DIY outfit photos for quite a few of them. They're not really in any order, and thanks to my medication- and nutrient-deficient diet-induced weight fluctuations, they range from size XS to M. I've included waist or bust measurements for each.

1. Red! Gone!

Waist: 26"

2. Blue lace! Gone!

Waist: 27.5"

3. Blue gingham! Gone!

Waist: 28"

4. Navy with teal lace! Gone!

Waist: 31"

5. Yellow seersucker strapless! Gone!

Waist: 26"

6. Lace shift! Gone!

Bust: 34"

7. Vintage print! Gone!

Waist: 27.5"

8. Polka dot lace! Gone!

Waist: 27.5" (but has some stretch)

9. Navy stripe! Gone!

Waist: 27.5" (but pretty stretchy)

Want one?? Instructions!

If you're interested in one or more of these, send me an email with your address! They will go first-come, first-served. I want to get this wrapped up by next Tuesday, 9/22.

I've done some calculations and I think shipping will be about $8, plus the envelop at $2.19... so the shipping cost will be $10. If you're the first one for your dress, I'll send you a PayPal invoice for $10 and ship your dress. (If you want more than one, only $5 for each additional dress in shipping.) (I can only ship to US addresses, sorry!)

So get shopping and measuring and let me know which ones you want! THANK YOU so much for helping me clean out my dress rack and send these lovely creations to good homes!!
