This one is by a lovely girl called Kathryn from London (check out her blog here). She sent me such a sweet message to say thank you for the pattern on BurdaStyle. It's so lovely to know that people are enjoying making things using my pattern!

This is my first custom order via Etsy. My chambray skirt was featured in a Treasury and a lovely lady contacted me about it. She subsequently ordered a skirt and top combo! Here are the results.
I ran my first 'sewing class' for my friend Helena (Dulcea). Helena is going off to an amazing fashion design job in the States and wanted to brush up her pattern-drafting and sewing skills. She made a beautiful chambray skirt inspired by my original. This was a dummy run- I hope to run more formal classes in the future. Thanks H!

Some more Port Elizabeth tops made by two great sewers who downloaded the pattern from Burdastyle: Angie (stripe), from Sew-I-Thought and Camelia, from Camelias and Crinolines. Check out the photos. I'm so thrilled- they look great! Well done ladies!

Finally finished my jumpsuit prototype for my vintage pattern range. My lovely friend Helena modelled it for me! Visit her blog, DULCEA. Pattern will be available sometime over the summer.

I was so thrilled to discover several finished product photos had been uploaded to Burdastyle (where I am offering a free Port Elizabeth pattern). Check out these creations by Strawberryorange, Carlihannah, Harperellen and Pinksalamander. I love the adaptations they have made!
