Announcement   Welcome to TRacyseWS, my goal here at Etsy is to be certain I make customers happy. All of my pieces are at or above selling standard. I do not list anything that is sewn without my personal attention to detail. Have confidence in knowing all seams are put together and sewn professionally here in the United States. Please check my policies, no returns or exchanges. Make sure you are confident with your purchases.

These days I co-own a fabric shop, sewing class and studio in Dayton, Ohio called Sew Dayton that keeps us super busy. We love our shop but sewing custom orders has taken the back seat.

About

Maker and sewing instructor at Sew Dayton.

Life moves and changes so fast. Today I am taking a look back at my etsy shop. I started TRacyseWS, my etsy shop in 2009 as a way to start selling the multiple retro dolls and hats I was designing. Slowly it stated changing to my vintage inspired, handmade dresses. Then to a custom dress shop, then vintage and when we opened Sew Dayton there was very little time to keep anything at all.

The dolls all sold although they took too long to make. I sold one hat although they never really took off. My guess with the hats is people really don’t like to display art work on their head.

“To succeed you have to try and everything does’t always succeed but takes you to new places even if it’s just a learning experience”

For the past 6 years I have been selling my dresses on etsy. It took me 2 years to get my first dress sale. I would joke that I might roll over dead if one ever sold, but I kept trying. Today, I have sold over 100 dresses on etsy, most are to one lady in California.

I still have my dresses, art and vintage in my etsy shop today. When I sell things I pay for more photo shoots or more art supplies to make more dresses. Making, this is what really makes me happy. It’s where my heart is at. These are a few of my new pieces in my shop.

In other besides my Blog post every Monday my friend Jessie Wenzler comes over every Monday for Crafty Mondays and we make fun stuff.
