I am a bit late writing my monthly blog posts this month. January seems to have become mid February all of a sudden!
Nevertheless lots has been going on as usual. Development wise I have been working on a basic semi fitted t-shirt block. A simple style that I want to offer as a sewing class in sizes from 9 months upward to plus size ladies. It will also be a style which I use in my kidswear range.
This is the second version I have done for kids but it still needs some more tweaking. Once the fit is right I will be able to try a couple of new design ideas for the range. In the mean time Ella is happy with a not so perfectly fitting addition to her wardrobe!
I have enlisted the help of my friend Tracy from Sew nothings impossible to help me with my next idea. Tracy has a super duper embroidery machine and has recently embarked on a new career in sewing so I am hoping to support her new venture if we can work out my design idea. The project so far is looking good. Hopefully next month I can show you these in context, and it will all make sense. But for now its all staying a mystery 🙂
A few new additions to the online shop in the next few days will be the first accessories.
The mini shopper is the essential bag from the age of one! Ideal for collecting, shopping, hiding, discoveries, secrets, sandwiches in fact all the important activities that occur when you are one or older!
I am also introducing the single sided pinafore. Keeping it simple with Penny pinafore. Some fabric options will be added over the next few days to my Etsy shop and online shop. As with all the styles they can be ordered in size and fabric of your choice from the selection I have available. I’m in love with this duck and swan print fabric, its quirky but so pretty and spring like.
Lastly part two of my bridesmaid dress project was printed in Sewing world magazine, as modeled by a very special little girl! There are two more projects to complete the look coming up in the next issue of the magazine, out this month.
As always I love to hear your comments and see piccies if you make any of my projects.
