I hopped over to Melbourne recently for the most amazing weekend with some lovely ladies from blog land. This was a whirlwind trip, as Simon (who was surprisingly happy to join in on all the sew-ist activities) and I ran around town over a weekend catching up with sewing peeps and trying to soak in as much as possible that this incredible city has to offer: Food, street art, coffee, galleries, did I say food?
Thanks for being a part of the journey, for your support and enthusiasm. When I read you amazing comments and see that fantastic projects that you make up, it fills me with inspiration and excitement to create. This is turning out to be quite the adventure. It’s been an amazing two years and I'm really looking forward to sharing new projects with you. To celebrate, we’re having a sale!
By some very unexpected, romantic turn of recent events, I've found myself on the other side of the world, in South Australia. I've been here for two weeks and it's been some of the happiest days I can remember. I was not prepared for the beauty that I'm seeing everyday, and I wanted to share some of it with you.
Hey sewists of Melbourne and Australia at large! Who wants to hang out for a super fun, action packed day of gallery hopping, fabric shopping, inspiration sparking, yummy food, fancy coffee and wine sipping fuuuun!!!
::: Tj's Hand Painted Lola :::
Isn't this dress crazy beautiful?!! My jaw dropped when I saw Tj's version of Lola. At first I thought, where the heck did she get that amazing knit and how did she manage to line up the print so perfectly across the panels?!?! But at a closer look, I realized that she DREW. IT . HERSELF!!! This girl has talent!
I wanted to share some of the beautiful dresses made by the super talented fabric designer, Josephine Kimberling. Taking a look at through her gallery, you can see such a great variety of awesome sewing patterns made up in her beautiful fabric, including some from the Victory Patterns' collection.
