Hey, all you lovely people out there, could you please help me out? I really want to know what you would like to see in my Etsy shop. Day dresses? Evening dresses? Trousers? Jackets/coats? What is the garment that you really would like me to design and make?

1940’s wool coats! With interesting features like asymmetrical closures, bishop sleeves and/or big collars! New look style jackets with nice waist and hip shaping! Faux fur trimmed dressing gowns! Really full petticoat or hip pads for dramatic silhouettes! Long, wool pleated skirts! 40’s knit tops!
