Hi Colette - Tracy here in Perth
(Remember me? - I made the Primaluna fuschia coat!)
Thanks for your comment on my blog - I've been meaning to send you pics of the Painapurra creations!
We call them the "Hawaiian Honeymoon" outfits.
I received the first lot of Painapurra with the aid of your gift voucher, then loved the texture & it's amazing retro look so much, decided Paul had to have a shirt too!
Each year we get together with other Thunderbird car owners for a Pancake Breakfast at nearby Floreat Beach. Our outfits were a hit!
My dress is retro Butterick 5603 and Paul's shirt is vintage Simplicity 2081 (a perfect match to his vintage Hawaiian shirt measurements).
Thanks again for the gorgeous fabric - it makes a striking statement
All the best til next time
