i do love to sew!

well, as you can imagine my sewing machine is in over drive at the moment and i am having nightmares of rocking up at mathilda's market with nothing on my little hangers, you know like that dream where you arrive at school and look down to find you are naked. that one is a beauty! always enters my sleeping domaine when things are extremely hectic. not to mention that i called one of my sewers today to see what what time to collect the completed work and she says she thought it was next week, fabulous! anyhow i guess there is no real point in stressing something in which i can not change. lets just hope i arrive on sunday with my clothes on.

i have really enjoyed creating my most recent dress, it is a recent pattern in which i have amended and made my own. i think my litte redhead would look lovely in this one. x

heads down bums up!!

well with less than two weeks until the next market my head is definitely firmly down with my bum up, it is crunch time and this house hold is feeling the pressure.  i never know where the time goes.  i have decided to run this style as a an easy wear beach dress. i think it is important to have these pieces in the wardrobe for the little ones to wear to the beach or park and that are easy to wash for the mummies(or daddies) and need no ironing. it will come in an aqua jersey also.

this is lovely willow (twin number two) or b twin as they liked to call her when she was inside and certainly needs a few tips on how to model the piece without looking like you are about to cry.

this is one of many creations i will be showcasing at the next mathilda's markets 05 december at riverview college lane cove. i will be reminding you all the week before x

the prairie skirt

Introducing the prairie skirt, this has been my project for the last couple of days to make a size run from left over fabrics which i don't have enough left to make dresses. One of the things i love best is combining prints and textures so this project was something i really enjoyed. these will be at the next mathilda's markets at lane cove on sunday 5th december. 2 1/2 weeks left and counting!

my little model looking lovely in the prairie skirt (i just need to let her know gently, she can't keep this one!).  For orders please email me.

This is a new pattern for me (oh and how I hate new patterns!) i love the part once you have drafted, constructed and completed a little item and it looks fabulous however the in between doesn't really excite me.  I have been really looking forward to using this beautifully light cotton voile and what better than on a  baby jumpsuit. The pattern needs tweaking and even though this one isn't quite finished I think it will turn out very nicely. Shame my model won't let go of her beloved bear for her model shoots!
