Too obvious perhaps... why don't you simply buy ready made "summer dresses" and "Christmas dresses" and sell them online? Much simpler than making your own. Far less risk.
But you'd still have another problem... tens of thousands of sites are already selling such products. Walmart, Penney's, Macys, are just a few of those you'd be competing with. I'd guess there are hundreds of sites specializing in selling holiday clothing.
How would you advertise your "Christmas Dresses?" Get ready to pay $2 a click during the very short selling season. How could you plan your buying with zero experience?
What do you plan to do with your leftover Christmas dresses on December 26th? What about exchanges for fitting and other reasons.
Plan on about 15% of those dresses being exchanged or returned, most at the very last minute before Christmas. And a few after Christmas.
What do you know about the notoriously fickle women's clothing business? Anything? Are you a woman? Have you ever sold clothing? Designed clothing? Worked in s atore of any kind?
