What we've been working on:
Aside from that, in our last production update, we let you know that the navy fabric color for The Stella Dress was on backorder for mid-February. Our supplier let us know there's a delay on this due to the shipment being held up in customs, but that they should be receiving it in the next week or so. We'll keep you posted as we hear back on this.
In the past 1.5 months, we also submitted our production orders and secured a spot on our production partner's calendar. After making some minor adjustments for a cleaner label stitch (to prevent thread colors from showing on the white labels), and adjustments to style lengths for our larger sizes (to ensure they fall at the appropriate length on petites), we started on production!
Our production partner worked on our 'top of production' samples for each style. 'TOP' samples are the first pieces that are pulled from the production run to ensure all look good prior to bulk production.
We gave the green light on these samples just this past weekend (behind-the-scenes photo shown above), so the sewing team will now be able to sew the rest of the production pieces. We'll be doing another round of inspections, for quality assurance purposes, as additional units come off the line.
