On My Desk


On my desk this week, well it was before I took it outside in the sun to try and take a decent photo, is another custom dress using my favourite box pleat design with the same beautiful Park Slope fabric. I just love how this one looks, I am thinking I will make Poppy one but with orange highlights instead of pink. It is a bit like the plumber with the leaking tap though, and Poppy and Caleb are rapidly growing out of their clothes with no new threads in sight. Don't forget our fabulous desky host, Kootoyoo.

More exciting news though, I have decided to do Matilda's market at Malvern in November, perfect for the Christmas pressie shopping and there are some fabulous women rocking it too. I am so excited to be in their company so I am busy sketching bits and pieces and get sewing once I am finished with these last lot of orders. Yeah - I love it!
