My new years resolution is to start a business making baby/kids clothes.  Hoping to kick it off with my tax return.  Any advice?

Lots and lots of advertising. Keep up stock. Hand out business cards. Make a Facebook page so people can follow and see new stuff. Go to craft shows.

I started my business last year and did pretty well. Hoping to hit up some craft shows this year before baby is born! I sell crochet character hats.

I would suggest Storenvy. No fees, and it's so much more customizable than Etsy is! Since their huge revamp I've been getting amazing views, and my second store does better on Storenvy than it does on Etsy. I get no views on Etsy.

Thanks for the idea of Storenvy. I looked at it and it looks better than etsy.

Storenvy is epic. It's way better than etsy IMO.

Lots of advertising. Stand out with your products. Don't be afraid to be different. Keep good records. It takes me forever to get my stuff in order every month to file my taxes.
