A few months ago I launched my woman's clothing line on Etsy and the name of the store is Fine-Threadz. This has been so much fun because it takes me back to my roots. I made my very first garment at the age of 4. It was an apron and I've been sewing ever since. Obviously, not always clothes because so far the leather goods have kept me pretty busy. But I started with clothes and I feel like I've come full circle.

Well yesterday was so exciting because I had a photo shoot downtown. It was awesome. The model, Nikki, really complemented my clothes and when I saw her in them, I said, "Yea, that's exactly why I love designing! Look at that girl! You go girl!" The dress shown above, done in the South Beach cut, using "Eye Candy" fabric is what she had on at the time. That and a pair of red high heels. I wish I could show you the actual pictures taken, but those won't be back from the photographer for a while. I can't wait to list them in my Fine-Threadz shop!!!!

And then more good news! The 24/7 Leggings from my clothing line, made the front page of Etsy. I didn't even know about it till it was all over with. I ended up with a sale and one custom order pending, plus a whole lot of hearts and hits. Of course, you need a lot more than that to get on Etsy's top seller map, but you gotta start somewhere.
