OK, I've officially given up on the idea that I can put up a blog post or two while we're away on our buying trip. It's all too tricky and I'm not at all keen on carting around a laptop as I'm always losing things, this year it was my makeup bag and iPhone!!!!
Well, we're just back and I really can't wait to show you all what we've bought for the upcoming seasons. Now we just have to figure out where we're going to put it all....
Oh, and I had an idea for a giveaway but I left that behind too! It's now coming with the fabric delivery, so do stay tuned.
Janet's back after a wee sewing hiatus with these two beauties. The pattern is Simplicity 2694 - a Project Runway number - and the fabric is Primaluna, a beautiful, felted cashmere (10%)/wool(70%)/poly (20%) blend that's available to order at all stores.
The two dresses are made up in Viola and Winter White colourways. Both fabrics were purchased from our remnant table so Janet had to play around with some of the pattern pieces to suit the fabric lengths available. You'll see that her sleeves and collar are a little different to the pattern options. In both dresses, she used the selvedge as hem.
It's that exciting time of the year again. We've just launched the 2010 Tessuti Awards website - www.tessutiawards.com.au. And this year, you can...
That's right people - one of TWO trips. And to allow more people to enter, this year we're taking the awards online. More details here. Category and judging criteria are also available for viewing so you can start the designing and sewing process now. Registration will open late July so keep an eye on the website.
