If you have'nt check out MixTape please do. It has great crafty ideas, inspiring articles, great recipes and it is put together by two very talented and very dedicated Melbourne ladies, Justine and Nichola.
MixTape is a refreshing change from advertisement saturated magazines that have very little reading content.
It is available from their Etsy store and I suggest you purchase a copy today!!

It is a simple top, yet is looks stunning on. I delivered it to her today, and she tried it on over a pair of black skinny jeans, it looked great.
I have made it using Hawaiian cotton barkcloth and lined it with a yummy rayon/viscose lining (the kind that you use in jackets). It has an open end zip in the back and the self covered belt is removable.
I will post some photos of her wearing the Betsy top on my flickr page soon.

So, in hope of her breaking this habit, I made her a black tote bag with a 'genuine' Elvis Presley fabric panel appliqued on the front. When I showed it to my husband, his comment was "well, you got the Vic Market look down pat" - cruel!!
I finally gave the tote to my mum last week and she loved it, just the way she has loved everything else I have made for her. The cutest thing she said? "Oh, I will be so proud walking down the street with this, it has Elvis on it and your label on it".
If you would like an Elvis tote too, let me know and I will see what I can do for you. ;-)

So with only 1 week and an unwell baby I created this simple, yet stunning dress using genuine Hawaiian cotton bark cloth. The dress has halter style straps, a high split in the back. I made a 1 1/2"self covered belt (not pictured) to complete the outfit.
As you will discover during my blogging journey, I am a brilliant dressmaker and a terrible photographer!! Let me know what you think...
