Vintage Anyone?

Well after months of my teenage daughter nagging me to make something from some curtain material I picked up in an Op Shop about 6 years ago, we finally put our scissors to work.  With the help (uhumm) of artful teenager we commenced a journey in which of course I took over the whole project, purely through frustration and slowwwwwwwwwwwness of the artful teenager, who might I say has not a clue how to sew!!  Look how our little skirt turned out!  And guess what?  I added a ZIP!!!! YAYYYYY!

What a weekend of Mahem! Getting ready for the BrisStyle Markets

Well Can I say I sewed my little tootsy off this weekend, thanks to a little tuorial I found on how to insert Zippers!!!!  Yes a sewer I am, but I have stayed clear of zips as they look increadibly scary.   Well after watching a tutorial on the internet, I am addicted to zipping.  Have a look at these little Coin / phone / girly purses I made on the weekend


And I also made some little Smock dresses that will look adorable with leggings Jeans etc..

I found some denim I have had in my stash for about 4 years that I have never thought of using only because I forgot it was there!!!!  Is that common hehe...... Im loving the meadowsweet collection!

Dont you just love a little Kimono

OK so now I have the Meadowsweet collecection, I have to make something out of it and not just look at it all day adoring it!!! Ho Hum it is so pretty.  I made this little Kimono dress which is reversable and must I say it has now become my favourite little pattern.  I only have sizes from 12 months to 4 and need to source bigger sizes as they make cute tops too! I love the versatility of having two dresses in one outfit.

Just a little something I whipped up!

I am just loving the art of Shirring, Thanks Samantha from Jettas Nest for her valuable tips! I have added some new dresses to my Etsy Shop all of the Shirred dresses are multi sized to fit either as a Dress a Top or even a Skirt.  See how practicle this style is!!!!  My daughters are just loving that I have mastered this skill! I also added some cute little brooches to some of the dresses, which can be worn with any outfit!

I purchased this cute little bird cage Torso stand too to show off my wares!

I made this little Apron skirt too out of Patty Youngs Mezzanine fabric.  I have had this fabric sitting in my stash for ages and wasnt quite sure what to do with it.  I think it turned out ok!

So Excited!!! My new Meadowsweet Stash has arrived

I ventured to the Post Office this morning eagerly anticipating the arrival of my 30 yards of Meadowsweet Collection.  My goodness it is breathtaking.  I took it to work and one of my colleagues was just as excited as I was as she got some scissors and helped me unravel the packaging just so she could have the first dibs in selecting that perfect print for a little dress for her niece. I just keep looking at it all day!!!  Cant wait to get my hand on my sewing machine and create some nice little dresses.

Happy New Year

Well Im off to a flying start!!! In my mind that is, I have been frantically scribbling down my ideas for the new year and cant wait to see them come to fruition.  I have had a bit of a hard time grasping the concept of Shirring.  My teenage daughters have been nagging me all summer to make them frocks for the beach with Shirring.  I tired my hand at it on the weekend but it didnt turn out the way that everyone says it should.  I have followed so many tutorials, however mine doesnt bunch up as much as I would like and made a size 5 childs dress which fits my 18 year old in the bust ho hum!!! Any body have some good hints as ive tried them all!!  Well off to the sewing machine again for the new year I have a spot at the Boutique Markets this Sunday starts at 8am - 1pm.  See you there maybe :D
