Wow – you all have been fantastic! Thanks so much to all of you who have ordered Skirties, or emailed me to tell me how much you like my site! Thatâ€™s been terrific â€“ and I really appreciate all your kind notes!
One question keeps coming up â€“ so Iâ€™ll just go ahead and answer it here. Yes â€“ Iâ€™m hoping to expand into dresses. But before I fire up and start having dresses produced weâ€™ll just see how it goes with the Skirty. But Iâ€™m so glad to hear from all of you who like the dresses â€“ it makes me feel like there might be a market for them!
Here comes another of my regional observations. First of all, there is now at least one Skirty in 3 countries. (Way to go Australia!) But my regional observation this time is about our own dear 50 States. I had a feeling that this might be the case . . . and itâ€™s turning out that I was right. The South is absolutely thumping the rest of the country in their appreciation of the Skirty. Iâ€™ve gotten orders from a number of different states â€“ and the northwest is holding itâ€™s own, the Midwest definitely has a presence, and the northeast has just a pitiful showing so far. But the South has everyone beat hands down. Are there more women in the South who are still concerned with the concept of being a lady? Do modesty and decorum still actually exist down there? Is it striking some sort of chord with the Southern Belles? Whatever the reason for it, I wholeheartedly approve of their enthusiasm â€“ so go for it you southern girls!
