I have been working on a new top design for literally 1 year now. I started working on it when I was pregnant and it has taken until today to deliver the new style to stores.

This figure flattering top has elbow length sleeves with self binding, self bound boat neck top and by popular demand, I have made this style with a slightly longer line (hip length), making this top perfect over a pair of jeans, great worn with leggings and also very cool tucked into a pencil skirt.

Send me an email for stockist details.

Vanessa's new dress

Two Sundays ago, my gorgeous friend Vanessa asked me to make her a new dress by the following Friday. No problem! Ha, good old Murphy's Law ensured that my son Bastien came down with the flu that very same night.

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...
