The weather has been so up and down lately. Its currently hailing/Snowing/Railing here in NC. It was 60 degrees last week. Needless to say that I am not amused Mother Nature. All of this cold and dreary weather has left me longing for spring and a new cute spring wardrobe. I’ve been slowly cranking out new spring designs and now that its fashion week I’m glad that my designs are following the very tailored trend that most designers were showing. I am loving Lela Rose’s Fall collection.
As far as my own designs I have a new design, Sooki and the Little Sooki. A mommy and me design. Its a open backed wrap dress with Sweetheart neckline.
Both sizes are going to be coming in Prints and Solids. The Woman’s size has buttons for closures. The Little Sooki has a Multi Snap closure to ensure that the child can’t remove them.
Also added to the shop is Skirt Extenders. These are your Granny’s slips, Made especially for adding much need length to a too short skirt or dress. They have a print or lace at the hem to add length and flare to any Skirt. They come in both Ladies and Girls sizes.
For the Little Lad I am listing backpacks, and a boys shirt and ties. There is also more Ladies wear design coming as soon as they are done being drafted.
This week was a work week. I have been designing away on a few new designs. One of which is not quite finished yet. The finished one is a new toddler backpack. It’s smaller in size to fit perfectly on their little backs. It will hold necessities easily and has velcro closures for toddler ease of access.
The unfinished is a revision of my former Sooki dress. Grading up patterns tend to take some time and testing to perfect. I do have a small peak.
The final new project I’ve been working on is with Bones. We have been designing a custom ring wrap for my engagement ring. Since its been 4 years is time I get an actual wedding band. Pictured is my prototype. This was before final changes and metal casting.
I’ve noticed a lack of craft/sewing related posts happening lately. I’m trying very hard to fix that, starting with this post. While the Holidays have taken me away from my sewing machine, I’ve been working on more portable things, I.E. Crocheting baby hats. I’ve made 3 so far. They have been extremely simple. Each one has taken under 2 hours to make. The black and the green one used the Basic Baby Beanie from the blog Inner Child Crochet
The Pink one, I designed the pattern myself after seeing several baby pictures with a similar style of hat. The pattern and a tutorial will be posted for Tutorial Thursday, so check back for that.
