Hey there you lovelies!

For those of you who haven't seen Carte Blanche updates on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, here's what's been happening since this summer.

We sent thank you postcards to our wonderful $5 backers.

In the meantime, I've been prepping production. Here are bolts of fabrics and patterns, lined up against my living room wall and ready to be transformed into your dresses. Currently waiting on factories to give me the go-ahead so we can get them made!

So that's it! 

You're the best backers a girl could ask for, and I'm sincerely and deeply appreciative of your support. I promise I'm doing the best I can to get these dresses made and shipped as soon as I can, and I thank you for your patience and understanding.

Happy Thanksgiving -- I hope you all have a warm and happy holiday!

xx,

Monica

      As this is Kickstarter and delays are more the norm than not, I'd rather have a perfectly made and delayed product than a hurried one. Take your time and learn your trade as well as you can. :)

      Hi Josh,

      I'm communicating with the factories about when they can begin production and will do my very best to ship for the holidays. I sincerely apologize for any and all delays and will continue to update our page with our progress!

      So if factory production hasn't even started yet, I'm going to venture a guess that the dresses won't be shipped in time to meet the original December estimate?
