So as more and more folk ask me what I’m working on nowadays, and sewing – setting up a shoot and working take a while to get my dreams from incubation to reality – I thought – why not share the journey. After all – the theme this year seems to be all that crap about it being all about the journey not the destination. Good to have a theme though – great for perspective.
I can’t bring myself to part with good fabric – not even if it’s just a 1/4 yard scrap. I have quite a collection. The good news is that my fairy godbaby was born on the 1st of October and Bella Waters is Pure Inspiration. So I am growing another branch on the Unabashed apparel tree- a wee line for the tiny folk. Pictured above is the first outfit in the series.
I am so very excited about this – The little red wool kimono wrap is so cute it hurts – little pocket with lace, lace bow with snap for easy wear and a sweet button on the center back of the neckline. The grey/blue variegated linen dress has a cotton batiste slip hem peeking out from underneath. Two cute gathered pockets for flowers or worms – depending on what your little girl collects. Three vintage buttons up the back and a little bit of sky blue zig zag seaming – Grandmas would die with delight!!! Look for them soon on my etsy sight. Each piece is one of a kind. The ultimate reduce reuse – these reclaimed bits of fabric would have gone to the dump with most folk. And we all know what a problem I have with really good fabric.
And for us regular sized folk – I have a fantastic Stretch Wool Crepe Swing Shirt – Navy Blue – and great white swiss buttons that gather the front.
