historical reconstructions like that are SO impressive... the gown looks beautiful!

ooh, I like these a lot. 

The zipper makes it not granny-ish, I think.  Plus, people are just used to shorts as glorified denim panties.

something about long sleeves on mini-dresses is so cool.

I love it!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: An Underselling Discussion: crafting problem everywhere... on: July 06, 2007 10:59:25 AM
Jumping in on the discussion randomly...

Just from craft fairs that I have been to, I would say that lowering prices may not necessarily lower sales.  I've definately gone to craft fairs in New York where I couldn't afford anything- but there were plenty of wealthy people who saw the high prices and were probably impressed by it instead of turned off. 

Think about how many people spend $4.50 for a Starbuck Frappamochalattechino when they could get coffee for .90c at a deli, or buy $200 designer jeans instead of $15 Walmart jeans! 

Of course, finding these people and marketing to them is harder than realizing that they exist....

This site really impresses me in terms of having fair-to-high pricing and completely getting away with it: http://www.lochers.com/

It's expensive because it's non-sweatshop!  Which  makes AA a good investment for non-crafty people who don't support child-labor and such.

But I think I'm gonna make my own. 



10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Opinions on flattering styles for different body types? on: June 26, 2007 09:36:40 AM
Cleandirty: I never saw that myShape site before, it's pretty cool!

Oh, and my flattering-clothes-type-info.

Umm.  I'm really short (like 5'0") and thin (32-24-31? I think.)

Things that look good: Halter tops (hooray for cleavage!), Shirts that hit at or above the knees, 50's style sillouettes (for waist emphasis, although I think just about everyone looks good in it) Tapered pants (for the same reasons why women with real asses don't wear them...) anything at the natural waist.

Things that look bad: Short Shorts (make me look about 10 years old) Long skirts (even shorter looking) Giant patterns, bags or sunglasses (MK Olsen bag-lady syndrome) Non-fitted shirts, and this is less of a fit issue, but ironically "cutesy" tee-shirts (less ironic when you look like you might still watch ninja turtles...).
