First Custom Order


Well, here it is, my first custom order. This skirt was order by a client in Australia, and unlike some of us, who are enjoying great sunshine, they are wrapping up against the winter chill.
The original skirt is made in apple green wool with matching applique flowers

The custom order was made in wool and cashmere mix, as you can see the client ask for a different colour fabric with contrasting applique flowers.

I choose black as the main body of the skirt and the applique flower are in green and yellow. I think it worked out well.

It was quite scary making for someone you cant see, not what I am used to, but I think I got it right, based on the feedback I received in my email

"Thank you very much, my skirt arrived last night and I am of course wearing it today. Its a perfect fit and I love it already"
and on my site

"Great skirt and wonderful seller. Helped me customise this skirt to exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much"
Its such a good feeling knowing that someone is enjoying what you have made, now I am all excited and I cant wait for the next order to come in.
