Summer's coming!!!

So we are looking forward to spring here and I have been putting on the thinking cap for summer sales. Our Australian summers are so hot it is difficult to get people looking at wool but they will look at the silk.
I have eco printed these fabrics and sewn up some summer splendor!

 This was sewn from a bought pattern and I've added the obi sash as an alternative look.


The second was a made up pattern using a small part of the "subtraction cutting" idea. As you can see I'm not sure yet which way I want those ties/extra bits to work.

Hey Pam!
A bit jealouse of your nice summers, but that's the way it is. I LOVE your dresses and I'm sure they will sell.
Love, Riet

great to see how it's working - all styles are just beautifull. For sure people will love them!

(since I have the PDF for a while now I'll start to make something in cotton before cutting in silk...)

I like the idea of changing the ties to suit ones mood ....or ones shape. The colours are soft and calm, perfect for spring.
