34  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / 0 sales, what am I doing wrong? on: January 14, 2013 09:02:34 PM
Hi all, Ive been on etsy with my store open for 2 weeks now, almost 600 views and lots of favourites, but no sales!

I find that people love my stuff at markets face to face. But not alot of interest in purchasing on-line.

What am I doing wrong? Do you think my stuff is on the wrong platform of selling? Are my pictures horrendous? I know they arent all uniform but Im working on it. Is it ok for the backgrounds to be different? If they match?
Im in about 5 teams and I post regularly, I am in 2 forums with my etsy site in the signature, I dont know what else I can do! Is my stuff too similar to whats out there? Blah : /

But mostly, I think it is the huge international shipping cost being a downer for me being in Australia. Any tips or input would be appreciated! Brutal honesty on why you think I have no sales yet is perfectly fine!!!!!  Wink



Thanks guys

if youre doing it on the cheap, i suggest taking apart an old dress that fits you on the top and tracing the pattern. then you can just make a skirt as flared as you like and attach it. sleeves can also be copied from the old dress and flare can be added. lace and layers and all sorts can then be added for lolita style.

if you dont have an old dress or cant find one at a thrift store, buy a simple dress pattern probably princess seam dress with flare, as that is the most common type of lolita style. gathers and poof can always be added into the sleeve by chopping the top of the pattern of the sleeve off, then adding slits all the way around and spread out (dont cut all the way off just to the very bottom edge) then sticky tape your piece back onto the main sleeve pattern piece. i suggest toiling your dress in scrap fabric first!! then it can be used over and over after you get the first copy right. xx good luck  Smiley

a zip would be a great idea as well as taking in the dress, if you dont want to do that then i suggest shirring at the back (elastic sew in rows or one wide elastic section just at the back or around the entire waist) all you do is turn the dress inside out, stich your elastic where you want gathers and pull as much as you need and sew on zig zag stitch. release and turn through it should be gathered up but you can still get into the dress as it will stretch via the elastic! x
