Reposted from Kickstarter Updates:
I’m very excited to let you know that I have received the Maisie dresses, and they look fabulous!
This is the very last item of clothing that was to be made as a result of the Kickstarter. So, that’s a wrap everyone! Those who ordered packages that included the Maisie dress will be going out no later than next week.
Just so you know, we only had just over 30 of this dress made. It was very expensive to produce (much more than we expected), so our stock is VERY limited. That’s awesome for those of you who pre-ordered! You really do get a limited edition dress!
THANK YOU to everyone who made this happen! I’m so, so thankful for your generous support and love and patience through this whole adventure.
So what’s next? Well, you can come visit me next weekend at Inspiration Los Angeles! I’ll have a booth there, and you can come visit, shop, and try on things in person (as long as we have stock left! We’re running out of some things). The show has a strong presence of vintage workwear and denim, and high end vintage clothing, but also great small made in the USA companies, and I’m honored to be able to be present as a vendor.
We’ll be there Feb 6 & 7. Click on the image for more info. Just so you know, the Vintage Fashion Expo is in the same building on Saturday, so if you come that day you can shop two events. I’d love to meet you in person! If you are able to come, make sure you say “hi” to me and tell me you were a Kickstarter backer. I’d like to be able to say “Thank you” in person.
And what about new designs? I’m puttering on a few new things, now that I finally have a little more time to think about things beyond the Kickstarter. We’re still in the baby stage, and the Kickstarter amount was actually less than we really needed when all was said and done, even though we went over the initial goal amount. There were lots of lessons learned in the background, but we made it!! I’m so thrilled! I’m considering doing future pre-orders, or possibly another Kickstarter when we want to add more things. I’ve heard from a few of you that you’d be willing to do that for more clothes since you loved the ones you got so much.
So what can you do to help keep this going? Share, share, share! If you pre-ordered clothing, I’d LOVE to see your blog posts, Facebook posts, etc showing how you style your new Wearing History Clothing pieces. Spreading the word is the best way to grow, and your input has really made such a difference already. I’d love to keep it going and not just be a one time thing, but we’ve gotta keep selling clothes if it’s going to happen.
I feel so, so blessed and so thankful that you all made this opportunity happen. I had a dream, but I didn’t have the means. You all, as a community, came in, backed me with your own hard earned money and your encouragement in other ways, and made this a reality. I can’t even begin to express how thankful I am for you. I wish I had better words to express it.
That’s all, folks! THANK YOU!

Ordered my Maisie first thing this morning! So glad I didn’t wait since stock is limited :)
