Sometimes I get so angry with the simple life they lead..

I was recently treated to some fabrics from Japan and this past weekend seems to have been a rather productive one - I managed to get another few fabrics from my stash used up and also to finish two more dress commissions, which were posted off to their new homes on Monday. I'm quite excited to have been receiving a few more enquiries about making things, lately. Whilst I can't see sewing ever being my career, it's been helping a little recently whilst times have been a bit tough.

This fabric is a lovely, light cotton gauze and I really like the print, teeny tiny sheep being rounded up by teeny tiny sheep dogs.

I decided it didn't need a lot of styling up, and in my book green and pink have always been a colour combination I've favoured, so I wore these shoes and felt rather Spring-like.

    1. Thank you. I've been making so many sleeveless dresses lately that it seemed like time for a change.
