does this look familiar to you? my very patient, very destructive little royals at the end of a crazy three day sewing spree earlier this week.
thanks so much to all who commented in the fabric giveaways! it was a real pleasure reading about what you do when you’re not crafting up a storm; we’ll have to do that again sometime. really, i was tempted to just give a single cut of fabric to every last one of you, but that’s not quite what you signed up for. i also have more fabric to hand out eventually (and patterns, which i totally forgot about until now), but shipping costs were quickly adding up and i got totally preoccupied with my new big project……….
women’s wear! i’ve been wanting to develop some pieces for a really long time, and for months i had a goal of a spring release. i’m a bit behind as these are prototypes, but i got a lot of new fabric in over the past few weeks (hence the purging to create shelf space), and that was just the inspiration i needed to sit for a few days and sketch/design/draft/cut/sew/rip/cut/resew this past week. i stopped at four (i have to constantly remind myself less is more) to regroup, and for now, i’m really happy with these basic, simple pieces. they are all light, flowy, classic yet modern–perfect for summer. still need a little tweaking, but the aesthetic is what i was going for, and they’re definitely wearable as they are. what do you think?!
we are headed out of town for a few days tomorrow morning…giveaway winners have been contacted via email. thank you again for playing along, and i promise you there will be more giveaways to come, of fabric, patterns, and a few hand sewn pieces that i’m ready to rotate out of my wardrobe and would love to be inherited by people who appreciate them! i have plans to post a photo tutorial of a new women’s accessory i’m adding to the shop as well, so you’ll all get a consolation prize soon! off to pack.
