Hoo boy, that was fun.

Well, guys, it's over! Well, technically it was over 2 days ago but I have been pretty much sleeping and useless since then. Anyway WOO it's done and you are all the best ever.

So, you may be asking, now what?

Now... lots of things.

We're going to finalize the SIX colors and we'll be sending out a survey to you to get addresses, etc. and if you have pants coming to you, color choice and size. Then we're going to order fabric, design and print hang-tags, do a final fashion sketch, get postcards made, and make Glitter Cuffs and Britches like mad! Postcards, prints and all lower-tier rewards should be going out mid-April to early May, and for Britches we're shooting for June, if not earlier. Okay really we're shooting for earlier but it might take longer than I think to get all our tags, fabric, etc. in. I'm also working on designing the next wave of fun things, including matching mini-skirts and ruffle-bustle skirts, to complement your britches, so keep and eye out for that, too.

Ok, I think that's all the news fit to print for now. Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll keep you updated as things progress! SOOO excited to get you all glittered up!

xoxo
