Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, I've been busy sewing a dress and had a deadline to meet. The dress is finished and I have my time back! I came across some Japanese kimono silk when I was going through my stuff. I love the bold colours and texture of the silk. So many pretty designs. I can't wait to go to Japan and bring some back. I thought I'd add a little decoration to one of my t-shirts. Apparently this trend was big in the 70's, time it came back I say!!

I've made a dark version of the previous design. It's actually a dark grey faceted czech glass so it sparkles in the light, really cute with a white T-shirt or wear it out at night to make your outfit a little funky looking. I used a thin grey velvet ribbon to do up around the neck which is super comfy. This design is really eye catching. Love it. What do you think??
Also I've been somewhat out in the garden of late. The weather has been splendid!! Here are a few shots I captured. So many great colours and it smells so sweet outside, like honey!! Spring sure does lift my spirits. Hope my photos lift yours....

This time of year everyone seems to be enjoying life. It's like we have been reborn again. Coming out of hibernation, winter is over and spring has sprung. This season there are so many vibrant colours, neon is perhaps getting a little over splashed however it does make life seem a little bit more happier. Why not be a little playful with our accessories. All the fun colours popping out at you. It feels so fresh to see fashion progress in a more colourful, playful kind of way. These beads are subtly different to my previous design. No two necklaces are ever the same all are unique. I think this would look hot with a little beach dress or I wear mine with a plane white T-shirt, a great way to spunk up your wardrobe!!
Hope you all had a great weekend xx

I'm sorry I've been so slack with my posts. It just seems like there is so much on lately. Tuesday night was fashion night. My friend and I checked out the RMIT student exhibition before heading to the MSFW. There was lots of colours and textures, laser cut fabric, light projections there was some really great installations. Highly recommend you going and checking it out if you're in the neighbourhood. It's at 1000 pound bend in Melbourne.
It's really inspired me to get back into dressmaking. I was going through all my bits and pieces the other day and came across some really great fabric. I could envision a cute summer dress instantly. I'm in the process of drawing up my pattern. It's taking me awhile as I keep changing my mind on the design. I'll be sure to post some photos soon.

Hope you all showered your Dad's with love this Father's Day! We enjoyed eating fresh prawns and drinking bubbles in the sunshine. A celebration not only for Father's Day but for Spring!! It was such a glorious day in Melbourne today.
Happy Father's Day!!
