I started this last summer, but I've finally gotten the chance to finish it! I ended up hand sewing a lot of it, the thin knit fabric did not get along with my sewing machine. That made it take a whole lot longer than I anticipated. But now it's done and I'll have a nice new shirt to wear once it gets hot again.
I had a great idea for what to do for my sister-in-law, but I'll have to do it next year so I'll have time. I got a whole bunch of old patterns of my mother-in-law's when she passed away, and SIL loves vintage but doesn't really sew. I thought I could make her one of the dress patterns, and that way it would be both something from me and something from her mom too.
I hadn't thought about flat rate boxes! I sold a pattern once years ago to someone I met online, but the shipping killed me. The post office's website gave me the wrong price for international shipping, so the shipping cost as much as she paid me.
Some of them are uncut, and the majority of them are women's clothes.
I did look at Etsy for pricing. It seems like the higher priced ones are all the ones I want to keep! I guess there's a reason for that! That's a good idea though, I'll separate out the few that are worth selling on their own and lot the rest.
I recently inherited a stash of patterns, many I will likely not use, most at least 10-20 years old. I've been checking sites like Etsy and Ebay to see what they go for, and some of the go for super cheap. So cheap I wonder if they even make up the shipping cost. Is it worth the time and effort to try to sell them individually, or are there places I can sell them in bulk to, like a used book or video store? I could really use some cash now, but I'm concerned that trying to sell them is a losing battle. Any advice? Thanks.
