A Handmade Wardrobe for Sale



EDITED TO ADD:

Thank you all so much for your bids! I've contacted the winning bidder, and the backup. Please let me say how much I appreciate everyone's generous support. I truly wish I could supply each and every one of you with your very own hooverette . . . .

I'm letting go of a whole bunch of clothes at once, and am offering them as a lot, to the best offer I get before midnight, central time tonight. The proceeds of the sale will be split evenly between an orphanage and a community development organization, both operating in West Africa.

If you're interested in submitting a bid, just send me your best offer by comment before midnight (none of them will be published), and please start above $30 as I anticipate this is what shipping will cost (there won't be any separate shipping charge).

All the clothes are things I made (with a couple of thift-store shirts thrown in) and most have been photographed for my blog and 'm linking to photos below. All are sized to fit a bust 36-38, waist 28-30, hip 40-41 figure.

Thank you for looking, and I look forward to hearing from at least one of you, please!!

This polka dot blouse and coral linen skirt.

This turquoise cotton dress.

This pale pink wool skirt.

This back-wrapping summer dress in pale blue.

This blue cotton dress cut down into a knee-length skirt.

This green polka-dot hooverette dress.

And these unphotographed items:

A lavender and pink floral circle skirt
A coral silk knee-length skirt (store-bought)
A natural linen A-line skirt, knee-length
A dark denim A-line skirt, knee-length
An Alabama Chanin short-sleeved blouse in lavender, a little short in the waist unfortunately.

Thanks again, dear readers!

What a great idea. Wish I was your size.

Very tempting! I could a few things to love, but I would be overwhelmed by the whole lot.

I'm curious about what's going on in your wardrobe. Is it the change of season that leads you to purge?

Did you sell them?!?!

Anna said...

No, they're not sold until I see the high bid at midnight. They're not in my etsy shop, I'm just taking bids through comments.

Margo, I was just feeling kind of full up. And with plans to sew more, something's got to give . . . .

I sincerely wish we wore the same size. Your have many beautiful pieces in there.

What an impressive collection -- even with the measurements it's hard to know how things would fit and/or look on oneself. I hope someone snaps them up though!

Elizabeth said...

Oh man...I would LOVE to buy the hooverette dress all by it's lonesome - the rest of the colors wouldn't work on me and I know it and I also know the perils of buying things I'll never wear.

Whoever buys it will look beautiful in it though!

Carolyn said...

wish it was my size, hope you got a good price!

Oh, if ever I regret being a tall and large woman,I do now. I look forward to enjoying your future sewing projects!
