As some of you have guessed, I am not going to be re-opening Wear the Shift any time soon. I have loved making so many cute dresses for all you hot and thoughtful ladies, but I just don't have the time to do it properly. So, no more shifts for sale. At least not right now :(
BUT! If you have ordered a shift from me in the past, and you want a copy of your pattern, you can order one here. I'm only going to keep this link active for a few days, because I'd like to draw a line under Wear the Shift in the next few weeks. And I won't be drafting new patterns -- this deal is only on offer for folks who've ordered dresses before. But I want you to have all the cute custom-fit dresses you want, even if I can't sew them for you.
If you decide to order, I'll send you a copy of your shift pattern (and your slip pattern, if you bought a slip from me) as well as instructions on how to put the dress together. It's a good beginner sewing pattern, and it's also an easy thing for any experienced stitcher to sew for you.
I want to thank you, so much, for your support over the last few years. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed meeting you lovely people and putting you in cute dresses that make you feel good about yourselves! My ultimate goal of overthrowing mass-produced ill-fitting fashions in favor of bright green, custom-made dresses has not yet been realized, but there are folks working on it. I have a few more ideas up my sleeve, too, and it's possible that I may yet get the opportunity to flesh them out.
Either way, the whole project has been amazing, and I can't really put into words how much I appreciate your faith in me. I may continue to update this blog with fashion rants and sewing projects, but you can keep up with what I'm doing and thinking a little more often over at Be Less Crazy and The Hairpin.
Peace, love, and cute dresses to us all, Madge
