Pattern Review - Vogue 8530

For any of you wondering about Emma (who is living in Singapore these days) I recently received an email from her including these pics of her with Zac who's now 9 months ...sheeesh time flies! Life in Singas definitely agrees with them don't you think?

Apparently Emma's had to sew up a few more cool and summery pieces for the hot days...and nights!!! Here's a great dress made up in our 100% cotton Eyeball Garden in Vogue 8530 with no changes made except for the length and a self belt added and says that the pattern was 'great and very simple'. I've seen this pattern made up in a jersey knit by Katherine, love that it works so well in wovens too.

Missing you Emma and I'll be working on getting you some samples soon. We hope you have a glorious 1st Christmas with Zac.



  1. Very pretty! Looks so comfortable!

  2. WOW, I love it!

    I have this fabric in my cupboard from last Summer and I also have the pattern (already made up in a knit similar to Katherine's). I love the way the pattern shows off the fabric, I knew I needed a simple design for the fabric and I love this! I think I might make it up! Thanks Emma, I miss you at Chatswood for your inspiration, you were great!

  3. Thanks Samantha, what a lovely thing to say.

    I miss me being at Chatswood too, but Singapore is certainly an adventure!
    Hope you and you're little man are well.

    ps - thanks cherri and Toni too!

  4. Hi Emma,

    I'm sure Singapore is an adventure!! Good for you, I hope you enjoy your time there. Zac is a cutie, you must be enjoying motherhood - you look great! I look forward to seeing more photos of your creations (and drawing inspiration from them)!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog too...

    Wishing you all the best.

    Sam x
