Modeling my Etsy skirt, and a poll for you!

I loved this skirt so much that I made the first one in my size to keep!  It is made to sit at the smallest point of the waist and bell out from there.  Defining the waist is a great way to flatter almost any figure, and I have really loved this style for years.  However, it can be hard to find readymade clothes that fit this closely because manufacturers can’t possibly make every size for every person down to the exact inches of our waists.  That is what is so great about making this skirt for Etsy; I can make it custom for each person. 

I am getting more and more excited about opening my shop.  I am going to start with these short skirts, but I am working on more patterns to use in the future. 
So, I have a few questions for you to help me as I am creating my line (tee-hee!  Doesn’t that sound awesome???).  Please take my poll, and leave your answers as a comment here on my blog.  I would really appreciate your feedback! 
A)      What do you feel is missing from your wardrobe that you really wish you could find?
B)      What do you think is the reason you can’t find what you are looking for when you shop?  Such as, “I’d love to have one, but I can never find the perfect pencil skirt in my size.”
C)       What do you buy over and over again, and why?
D)     What do you wish designers knew about your body type? 
E)      Do you have any other suggestions to help me figure out what you would like to see in my shop?
That’s it for now, and thanks for helping me out.  Have a beautiful and creative day!

  1. Skinny work pants that are long enough for my legs. No one makes a skinny dress pant long enough for my legs! I buy tee shirts over again I can never have enough. I wish affordable designers would acknowledge more than just a standard length for dress pants.

    1. Thank you so much for responding Jenn!!! I'll keep your comments in mind, especially if I ever master pants! Also, I am going to be offering t-shirts soon. :)

  2. A-I would love more dresses that are simple and comfortable without looking like a sack. I struggle with fitted dresses because of the bust-waist-hip thing plus I'm a plus size who doesn't want to wear a tent. I would also love a skort that isn't dorky. Shorts keep the legs from rubbing, but I cannot find shorts that I enjoy on my body type. I would kill for a skort that doesn't look like it was from landsend.
    B) Plus size petite.
    C) Jersey dresses and skirts, yoga capris, hip skimming tanks, and dark denim.
    D)Plus does NOT equal a TENT!
    E) Longer skirts (like knee length) that define the waist then skim over curves...

    1. This is all so helpful! Thank you! :)
