It’s been a while since I wrote a blog post. I’ve never really been a very good blogger, even though I’ve been blogging on and off since the end of 2000. But this post isn’t about my blogging history or my inability to stick to a proper posting schedule.. nope, this is about my brand new witchy t-shirt label! That’s right, I’ve gone back to apparel! If you’ve been a follower of mine since before I had my witchy online presence, you may remember I started a fashion label back in 2013 where I designed and made gorgeous evening gowns. That didn’t work out. And it was for the best.
This time round I’ve chosen to start with tees, because they’re inexpensive to produce, they are less time consuming, and as they are cheaper than couture dresses, people won’t take so long to decide if they want to buy one or not. Plus, these are witchy!
The first t-shirt I designed is for Samhain; it’s a black t-shirt with orange print, my own design and hand printed to order at home.
I intended to also offer the tee in the reverse colour-way, but well, this is how the sample turned out!
The problem was that I went over it way too many times, thinking this would give me a better image. I quickly learned the best way to do it was in one swift move. I learn fast. I got this.
I think I’m going to order another orange t-shirt and get this colour-way up for pre-order along with the black one, which went up only a couple of days ago and has already proven to be really popular! Thank you if you’re one of the people who placed an order!
Over the next few weeks you’ll also see a few other designs pop up. Starting with the Yule tee, a gorgeous navy with silver printing and Swarovski crystals. I’m also working on a red Yule jumper with gold printing, and a few other signature designs. In October you’ll also see at least one child’s tee and one men’s tee, as I want my daughter and husband to wear my designs to Witchfest in Brighton this year. I haven’t designed them yet, but as soon as I do, they’ll make their debut over on my Instagram.
