Istrian Seaside Break

Image
It was the endof September inIstria, in thevillage ofBale. In the hotel named La Grisa with the best restaurant in Istria (2013.) with the same name. The food wasdivine.
If you ever come to Istria go and visit this small village whereyou can hearthe silence.

The hotel is made of 6 or 7 neighboring houses with 2 entrances and restaurant terrace/foyer in the middle.
Each room is furnishedanddecorated differently,in a modern way, butwith a touch ofthe originaloldhouse. I really liked staying there.

200 sales on Etsy and Crying over the blue garter belts

Image
The last week was the day when I had 200th sale from my Etsy shop! Yay!!!! I think Idid quite wellin thepastyear.
Who would havethought thata classicgarter belts wouldsellso well. 
Last yearat the same timeI had1327views, 128favoritesand1sale. Now I have 4264 views, 369 favorites (which is unusually low) and 19 sales and it's onlymiddle of the month.

What I do notlike aboutthis jobis thatI neverknow how manysuppliesshould Ipurchasedbecause eachmonth is different. That's why I'm alwaysin deadline rush,becauseshipmentsof coursedoes not comeat the timewhenI need to. Right now I'm waiting for a black Lycra, my No.1 supply . Fabric was dispatched a week before last week together with another package. So, the other package came last Friday and package with fabric is still not here (it's Friday again). Did package lost? What to do? Should I order another fabric? But then I'll have to wait another week to come. 
If it's still doesn't come until Monday I'll ha…

Now thatsummer isgoneIdo not needswimsuit anymore andI'llsewitbeforenext summer...and so thisis the third yearin a row. What an embarrassment.

Here is my new dress. I immediatelyfell in love withthiscotton/silk voile fabric. It looks like an old dutch master painting. Too badthere was nomorethan 2 m.


Edit: 
Jane asked what pattern did I use for the dress...it is from the 5/2006 Burda and sleeves from the 3/2008 Burda Style magazine



And this is my new blouse with the same fabric, the rest of it actually. Pattern is from the 3/2008 Burda Style magazine.

About negative review and New shoes

Hello hello!
Long time no see!
This summerhaspassed very quickly. At the beginning of July I had really much work to do so I decided to take a break from sewing made to order clothes and taking Etsy orders only.
I realized that garter belts and retro pants, especially dungarees are my best selling items on Etsy. 
Although myfavoritesewinggarment are dresses and I sew them as made for order really really much,inthe past year on Etsy I sold...just two. And I didn't sell any skirt.  Unbelievable. 

In the meantime I receive my first (and only) negative feedback which in factis not a negative, but itdid not bringany good.
It says so:
"First let me start out that Goga's retro garter belt is awesome, and if someone fits in Coco's Retro Closet standard sizes, I'm sure it would work awesome. I had messaged the Goga with my size in both private message and on the order. Since you have to choose a size when ordering I choose large, but she said I just needed to include a no…

Set se sastoji od grudnjaka, gačica i dvije vrste haltera, a na red za šivanje još čekaju jedan girdl i još jedan grudnjak klasičnog kroja za veće grudi.
