Look how far I've come!

Lots of exciting things planned for 2013.

gigantic thank you to all the people who've encouraged and supported me throughout the year.  Cheers!


Christmas Baby Clothes

Inspired by the stylish Miss Lucy Van Pelt, I whipped up some Christmas treats for my little niece.

I started by piling all my leftovers onto the workroom floor and then just patched bits together.  The floral linen was an old table cloth, the printed binding came from L'uccello (Kym has gigantic spools of it in lots of Liberty prints), I found the vintage pink lace somewhere inside the Chapel Street Bazaar and the rest originally came from Tessuti in Melbourne.

The patterns are adaptations of two dresses I made for her birthday and yes they're pink....but I did it MYYYYYYY WAY!

Merry Christmas sweetie!


Sweet Little Chickadee

 Feeling patriotic? 

Juli, from Sweet Little Chickadee, is now stocking a selection of my patterns.  So talented! Juli is an illustrator, photographer, writer and runs her very own on-line store based in Colorado.  

 Things Juli loves....

"fairytales, black and white photos, old movies like Casablanca and Roman Holiday, vanilla lattes, jasmine green tea, vegan cupcakes, dark chocolate, heavy metal and rock music, cooking and baking, vintage patterns, sewing, micron pens, painting, soft granulated watercolor washes, reading a really good book, old keys, bath bombs, sunshine, running, pilates/yoga, funny stories, making things by hand" 


Ra Ra Action

A knee length, double layered version of the RA RA SKIRT is coming soon but in the meantime some more shots of one of my favourite patterns in action.  

The RA RA is made in a combination of Liberty print cottons found at Tessuti in Melbourne and was shot by photographer James Cole on the beautiful Charlie Delroy.


Freddie LOVES Ra Ra


 The FREDDIE VEST combines a heavier textured cotton with a sheer viscose and Liberty print lining.  The RA RA SKIRT was made in a combination of Liberty prints and all fabrics were found at Tessuti in Melbourne.


Under Cover

Just a little bit dangerous; the TRUCK STOP TOP made ready for some Emma Peel style action.


I lengthened the top by 10 cm and selected a double sided fabric found at Tessuti in Melbourne.  A zig-zag stitch was used around the neck, armhole and to flatten out the seams.  The necklace is from Collezione Alessandro.
