Will Stitch for Paint


Friends of mine own a painting business. When I mentioned that I needed some painting done, my sweet friend said, "We'll do it for a couple of dresses." I love trades! I hung up the phone and made three. Who can resist coordinating sister dresses?

Or uber-girly pink?





(Okay, the ruffliness might be a bit much)


Points for remembering to sew in my clothing label! Only 99 more of these left to use up.

You can never have enough ruffles...I love the old barter system :)

First of all, the dresses are awesome. Second, kudos for you for bartering. I wish more people did that. I barter my sewing skills for free dance lessons for my girls. I make the costumes we get $500.00 per month in free lessons. You can't beat that. Use your skills for the better (or free). Again, I LOVE THE DRESSES!!!
