What a huge weekend!! It really was a doozy. I re-opened the shop on Saturday morning and over the last two days it has basically been sold out. I have plenty of fresh orders to keep me busy for a while, and a new dress style that I desperately want to develop, so its time to shut the shop again so that I can focus on the business of making and creating.
The new style, that I have named 'the baguette' features a fully lined bodice and a pleated skirt with side pockets that meet in the middle (like a hoodie, but hidden). I don't know why I named it the baguette, it just popped into my head and it stuck.
I played around with the idea of an apron pocket skirt and I LOVE this. I think the combination of the fabrics and the style tell a really old fashioned, Australian story. I haven't named this style yet, I am open to suggestions.
Also feeling completely inspired by the 70's beach girls from puberty blues. I caught my first episode the other night and I'm instantly addicted, I will have to download the first few episodes that I have missed already.
On Friday I hit up the op-shop and decided to browse the ladies jeans (I don't peruse the clothing that often any more) and hit the jackpot. Two pairs of the most awesome fitting jeans I have EVER owned at jut three bucks a pair. I was so ridiculously happy I had to call someone just to tell them how lucky I was. I have decided that the oppy is the perfect place to buy jeans as they come pre-stretched and already worn in. Usually I buy a great pair of jeans that don't fit me two weeks later because they have grown a size.
So I have has a most productive, happy weekend! I have my girl back now and its time to give her my undivided attention. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday evening.
