A little bit of Aloha…

I don’t mind doing custom orders, I love working with customers to create their vision.  It’s a little nerve wracking (is that the word?) for me ~ It’s easier to create something, and hope you like it ~ but I do also enjoy creating something especially for someone too.  So I was happy to try and make something for someone who contacted me on Etsy  after making a previous purchase.  She wanted a simple dress, and gave me some ideas of print, color scheme, etc.  I was a little bummed at first because I couldn’t find anything similar to the print she sent me a sample of, but I just went with my gut and picked out a couple of fabrics I thought might work.  I sent the pics to her and just kind of threw in the comment “they might be a little too ‘aloha’ for you, but hey, I am in Hawaii after all, lol”…turns out she loved it, she said “I love ALoha!” haha.  Whew.  So it was no problem whipping up the dress, and she loved it.  It’s really not that big a deal local or otherwise, because if it doesn’t work out, then I’ll just list the item or use the fabric for something else, so I never pick up a fabric that I can’t see myself using for another project.  Just glad I could spread a little aloha though!
