Hiya all. Thanks so much to everyone who took advantage of my little birthday sale, the response was overwhelming and I'm going to be sewing all week long + longer. I love love love and appreciate your support, thank you again.
I've been intensely busy these past three weeks - filling orders, drafting and grading patterns and thinking about Fall 2013 (omg, this industry is time-retarded). I foresee things not letting up till the new year and, of course, it's always my blogging that falls by the wayside. I also just got back from a teensy whirlwind of a trip to NY, questing for fabrics and finding nothing. At least I had delightful visits with some of my favourite people in the city and ate a ton of good food, go me.
From now till forever though it's back to work, head down, hands dirty style. So what am I working on? Well, I'm madly filling your orders from my sale which, *fingers crossed*, should all be shipped out by the end of this week. I'm also sending a new shipment of dresses to Victoire in anticipation of party season (the one that falls between Halloween and 'why isn't winter over yet').
Here are some (not very good) pictures of the 'Saturn' dress:
And here's the 'Neptune' dress, so named because one feels like a slippery little iridescent fish while wearing it.
Sorry again about the bad photos, bad blogging, bad time-management etc. Oh, and can someone please tell me how to photograph a black dress against a white wall without losing all the details? I'm useless.
