Just a quick update on what I'm working on today... Sorry no pictures, my camera is BROKEN!

# dress with POCKETS! yay!!
# larger sizes, hopefully up to an Australian 20...
# cleaning, yuck! rent inspection on Wednesday, Damn!
# maternity dress pattern, because I can not wait to see a pregnant belly wrapped up in one of my designs!

So If I have had to turn your order away lately, due to sizes and the like, hopefully I will be able to help you soon.

In other news, I have broken 4 needles in the last 2 days! Shit!! must remember to buy more or we will all be out of luck in the next few weeks.

Thanks to all of the lovely ladies who have been purchasing my dresses! Your support is so very appreciated MUCH LOVE XOXoxoxoxox

I cant wait to see the photo's from this wedding! The fabrics this particular bride has chosen are so very dreamy!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, wherever you may be!! xo

yummy stacks... and a few little op shop finds

Holy cow, what a week! I have had SO much attention since I listed my first tea dresses for sale on Etsy. I woke up on Tuesday to two different requests for bridesmaids dresses - 9 dresses altogether - and I can't wait to get stuck into making them.

In other news - I am branching out to sell vintage in my Etsy

I headed inland to a few tiny towns to scour the op shops and see if we could get our hands on a few treasures. We found a stunning dainty white dress. It is pristine and it wouldn't be out of place as a vintage style wedding dress - I'm thinking the bride in kill bill, in a tiny chapel in the middle of the desert, cowboy boots... you see what I'm getting at. We also found an
  apricot dressing gown with gorgeous smocking detail, the prettiest VERY synthetic 60's or 70's blossom print fabric that falls floor length. It is so glamorous, I am pretty disappointed neither fit me - WAY too small, vintage ladies were thin!! At least I know they will make some stylish lady out there verrry happy!

Well, lovely peeps, time to go put my little miss to bed. I will be at the markets in Dunsborough town centre tomorrow night, 4pm to 8pm. I would love to see you there!!

I hope you are safe and happy, wherever you are. Goodnight xo

Vintage inspired tea dresses HAVE ARRIVED!!! Hooray!

Well it has been a long time coming BUT FINALLY I have taken some time to photograph a few of my dresses and load them for sale on Etsy.

Thank you so so so very much my wonderful model - Elle you are so beautiful - We are so lucky to have you living with us right now. You are always a tremendous help and I LOVE YOU!!!

AS for the Quilt-In-Progress, I am so excited about how this is coming along. This one will absolutely be a keeper. And it is such a joy to be working on something so special and personal as a gift to myself. Can't wait to show you the finished piece.
