The Swing of Things

Now that university has slowed down, I have time to get back into the things I enjoy. My brain has been on a creative low lately and I intend to indulge in inspiration until I get it right back where I want it. 


Today I've spent my day lounging around, going through my material and sewing a dress. The dress I'm currently working on involves a scalloped hem, which is something I'm mildly obsessed with lately.

I'm also working on a little polka dot number...

Scalloped hem..harder than it looks!

Can anyone say POLKA DOTS?

I've also recently been featured on a website called "Upcycle Australia" which is a website that is dedicated to showcasing people who use recycled material and reinvent it into a work of art. 

Since I use recycled fabric in some of my designs, I was approached to be featured on their website.Here is a screen shot for you, or you can click on the link above to see the original article.


 In the previous post I talked about the shoot that I styled, here are some Polaroid snaps of me putting together some outfits and Frances hard at work shooting away...

Another project I'm working on is creating a logo and ordering labels for my clothes, so they can be attached. Any ideas on a logo?

Look out for this Saturday's Townsville Bulletin as I will be featured in an article by Fashion Journalist, Roanne Johnson.

Hope your day is wonderful,

All photos taken by me.
