I’ve been operating my Etsy shop, Parsimony (meaning: frugal, thrifty), for almost 3 years.  It’s been a ton of fun, and I’ve sold over 400 dresses.  If you had to look at that number twice, so did I!  I can hardly believe it myself.  It seems like I’ve only made a few dresses, but I have the records and the feedback to prove that I truly have sold over 400 items.

By far, my best seller has been and continues to be my Team Spirit Dress.

In case you're wondering, that's me on the far right! Thanks J Cota Photography for such an awesome photo!

Why am I saying all this???

Well, I’m pretty sure that I’ve sold about 200+ of this style of dress…and today I mailed off a version in ORANGE  – and would you believe I have NEVER made it before in this color?  I show this color in my Oh So Cute Tuxedo Dress photo, yet no one has ever ordered it in orange….until now.  I liked it so much, that I took a few photos and thought I’d share with you all.  Furthermore, it got me thinking about the history of this little dress…so I thought I’d share some photos of a few of the different ways I’ve created this little number.  So,  yeah, this post is for me.  A little bit of memory lane strolling.

And here are a few other options that have been created … mostly at the request of Etsy customers.  If you’re one of those women who’ve purchased this dress – THANK YOU!  I really do enjoy making each one!

I just mailed this one off to France, I believe.

Wait...maybe it was Tahiti...

Eggplant version - featuring the lovely and talented Tiffany Schwedland.

Team Spirit Hook'em - commissioned by the super fabulous and fashionable Melissa Navarro!

Canary - featuring the gorgeous bombshell Jeana Hansen!

And the original photo that started it all - Team Spirit in Cobalt.

Funny little sidenote …  in the winter time, I get about as many convos regarding my boots as I do about the dress!  Thanks hubs for the great boots from San Francisco!

So there you go – there’s little bit about my Team Spirit Dress.  Thanks for obliging me!
