oh, i forgot to add, you should *always* press all your seams Smiley

$20-30? Wow.. Those were just really crappy test dresses too. I think I'm going to just start stocking up on material and just start making stuff.

I didn't spend a lot of time making them because they were just test projects to see if I could do them. I did press the seams, but I've been getting such good positive feedback on here that I'll definitley start selling some quality dress on etsy ASAP!

I'm not really into spending hours on personalized hoodies or jeans, but I do love making tops, dresses, and skirts. Would they be marketable on etsy?

Well done! The halterneck dress is lovely : )
Etsy is awesome, I think it's def. something you should look into.
I would reccommend definitely getting a serger (I couldn't understand quite why it was so important until I realised that I would never buy anything ina store without serged seams, and while I don't aim for my clothes to look like they're mass-produced like the stores, I do want them to look as high quality and like they'll last just as long!).
Good luck!

you know, and this is only my little opinion, but i think that adding a little applique would make it a lot more sellable on etsy.  just a little flower or something near the shoulder or by the hem of the dress.  i mean, i love stuff like that, and i think people on etsy do too.  but, of course, dont do it unless its something you like...you know. 

anyway, good luck.  and yeah, i serger would rock, but theyre spendy!
