Hello lovely people! How’s your week going so far? Mine’s been crazy busy, and then last night I thought I could finish the skirt I’ve been working on, but Amy’s favourite doll needed a skirt more, apparently, so… But you guys have been making lovely things, so here some of them are!
- I mean, Liberty’s always pretty, but Hila’s Melilot shirt is really, really pretty.
- I’m crushing on kimonos at the moment (hence my last make), and the Named Asaka is next on my list. They seem to be popping up everywhere at the minute (I think it’s a challenge or something), and Carmen’s jade-green version is lovely. Also: Jealous? Parasol? Me?
- Heather made a pair of Flint pants, and I’m one step closer to wanting some myself. Perfect summer casual…
- Have you seen Pauline Alice’s new patterns? The Mirambell Skirt is a super-pretty skirt with stitched-down pleats and a shaped waistband, and the Lliria Dress is a feminine wrap-over dress with asymmetric button closure. I really want them both..
- Saki has made the most summery dress ever *heart eyes*
- The founders of Block Shop, a home-wares company that uses traditional Indian hand block printing, talk all about this fascinating process on a Pair & A Spare.
- This is hardly news, since it dates from 2015, but you need to see these dresses from the Met Museum archive. Trust me.
- DesignSponge have free downloadable wallpapers from Cotton & Flax‘s new fabric collection, Arroyo! There are going to be 6 altogether I think – this is number 4, and there are links to the previous ones in that post. Anything that makes my computer screen more like fabric is good.
You all have a lovely weekend!
