I have always hated the idea of a at-home sweatshop that turns out the same item over and over, it also doesn't look great in a photo when everyones wearing the same dress. So  my post-alchemy solution to this is a "design it yourself" feature on my etsy. I would love everyones opinion on my solution to this problem, I'm not sure if its very professional, or if people would even like that option, but it does save me time in not having to make tons of dresses for prototypes that I don't need (and in random sizes)....I dunno what day you?

here. is the listing in question. Huh

I think it's a good idea and it's perfectly fine for now to have drawings but maybe make some up for yourself or friends, just to prove that you're capable of doing all those different styles. Smiley

I think if you have photos of the actual dresses, great, but I don't think it would lose you a sale without them. It would be nice to have the main pic dress standing up, though.
