I love making vintage style 1950’s outfits, and friends have been sugesting for ages that i sell some of these – either at markets or through eBay. I’m starting to think of doing this – really just as a hobby to earn a bit of cash so I can afford to support my fabric habit!
I guess my biggest concern about selling garments I’ve made is the question of quality. I am an amateur dressmaker – I’ve done some lessons, but nothing professional. Whilst my garments look good and are well finished, if you look closely you can tell that they are ‘home-made’ rather than factory or professionally made – eg, despite my best efforts, sometimes seams are slightly crooked; I might have had to restitch a section of a seam; I might have a ‘snarl’ of thread at the beginning or end of a seam etc etc. I’m worried that the quality might not be “good enough” – even though I would certainly be letting people know they are home made items.
What do others think? Does anyone else sell garments they make?
