I've been bugging mom for years to let me start cutting up all the saris that I no longer wear, but I think she'll have a heart attack if I do before she's ready.

I think you are right about the buying tendencies at the shows this year.  Everyone's too nervous.  I think a new attitude from the top down would start to change things which is partly why I'm holding off getting into selling.

I'm going to head over to etsy, but some questions that I hope aren't too stupid.  I've only worn under-clothing ones on the suggestion of my doctor, but while I can see ones like the purple one being more limited, I would see the flocked one worn more often.  But how do I figure out the size corset I should get?  Is it only the size around the waist?  Does torso length figure in and if so, how to measure that?  Is it embarrassingly obvious that I'm not a seamstress?  (no one's gonna see the under ones, so I've never considered how they'd look.)


ETA: You answered my question at Etsy! And I understood it Smiley  thanks again!

You should try selling them on etsy!  Someone probably already mentioned that.  I haven't read all the posts.  But it's a good idea.

There is something sedatingly seductive, about a skillful pair of hands.

i just had to say hello to another Orey girl!!! i have lived here my whole life, and never been/heard of the festival you mentioned Sad i feel robbed! its sooo nice to see another kindred soul out there who lives so close Wink

i ADORE your work, you are truly awesome! i cant believe you didnt have this stuff flying off the "shelf" when you were selling them! are people crazy??? when i see something so unique, to know that you will never again in your entire life lay your eyes to that beautiful thing again, it just kills me to walk away from it, (and if i had money, i would be up to my ears in stuff like you produce, lol) so i just cant imagine why more people dont realize that over-processed garbage that chain stores churn out is made from junk by slave labor, sold by retailers working without fair wage or benfit.....ahhh!!! before i cant stop myself i will just say, kudos to you, for keeping the dream alive, that one day people will wake up and understand that sooner than later, the industrial complex is doomed to collapse, and the only thing we will be left with, is the skills of our human hands! it wasnt that long ago that if you didnt know how to fend for yourself, (make your own bread, purify your water, build a home, make your clothes, hunt, tools, etc) you DIED. 

viva la revolution!!!! lol

sorry for the long-winded vent, i cant help myself, i am trapped indoors far far far too much, without human interaction! Wink

I would much rather invest in the lost trades of all the handmade skill left in our society, than feed the blood-soaked steel teeth of the reckless, greed consumed monsters (you know who you are) devouring what's left of this rare, and precious Earth.
