We have been working for several months on building our online businesses, including our Etsy shops as well as building a new website for our designs and creations. One of the projects that has been in the works for quite some time has finally come together! We have received so many requests for plus-size women’s garments that are professional and classic, but that are also easy-wear and easy-care.
With the help of my good friend and business coach, Christie Browning, we decided to start with a very limited selection of spring designs to see if we can get the right “mix” of garments that will work for the professional woman. Our goal is to create custom-made clothing in two or three fabric combinations each season, with basic pieces each season that will include one or two jacket designs, a skirt design that can be made in the length that a customer might order, one or two dress designs that will coordinate with the jackets, slacks and capris (for spring and summer, of course) or palazzo style pants for either a more casual look or perhaps a dressy look with the right accessories, and one or two tops that will coordinate with all the other pieces in the collection.
Our spring collection has just been made available, and it includes a sleeveless dress that has a v-neck above a high-waist seam which makes the skirt drape nicely without excess fullness; a lightweight knit cardigan jacket that coordinates with all the other pieces in the spring collection; a six-gore knit skirt with a wide elastic waistband for comfort and fit; lightweight knit slacks; and an embellished tank-top that works nicely with all of the other pieces in the collection.
In the coming weeks we will add a few more pieces for spring and summer, and more color and fabric selections, but for now we are looking for your feedback and ideas of what YOU would like to see in the future from Gossamer Threads. So many of our customers have been inquiring if we could do plus-sizes and of course we can! We just need to know what you are looking for.
Please leave us a comment and let us know the styles and colors that you would like to see in the next collection of plus-size clothing from Gossamer Threads. Professional, casual, classic, timeless – our goal is to design and create garments that will fit and flatter every figure type, and make you feel as beautiful as you are!
