I’m so excited! I’ve just about completed my first 60s style floral bra and shorts set, along with matching scrunchy. I chose a dusty pale pink as a contrast lining on the set, (also as tribute to one of our current colour fads,) which will tie into one of my next sets 😄
Can’t wait to make more out of this fabric, its super cute, but I put together a little colour story with some other fabrics I already have as an idea for my first release of pieces this summer.
I would really love to hear your feedback!
Hoping to make another style of shorts and top, along with a skirt and basic dress in varied fabrics.
Lots of sewing to do! I have nearly finished my trial for the next style of shorts after yesterday’s RDO sewing day!

70 days until I’ll be boarding my first flight to Japan!
I now have Wednesday off each week, so i have more time for sewing (and mental recuperation.) Today I did a mash of things, cleaned my bedroom and bedding, sorted out my sewing supplies, (played The Sims for about 4 hours,) and scoured pinterest for some outfit ideas for my budget trip to Japan this October.
I want my clothes to be easily rotatable and repeatable. Because I still need to spend some good money on shoes and a bag, I’m hoping to be able to take mostly the clothes I already own along with some well picked fillers, required items and “pop” pieces!
Obviously they also need to be able to sit in a bag for periods of time and my god, I avoid ironing even at home.
I also have a lot of thinking to do about shoes for day wear, dressing up and hiking.
This will be a timely process…
Photos do not belong to me.
See my Travel Style Inspiration board on Pinterest:
Had planned to have a relaxed day at home today, plotting along editing photos, watching movies and planning travel sights and adventures after the crappy week I’ve had…
Well, i have no internet again. Although I had solved that drama last night by borrowing my brothers telstra laptop (unlimitied) hotspot.
I got home this morning to find my laptop thrown on the ground (along with both my phones,) as the result of yet another of my fur baby Miley’s late night tantrums.
Luckily the laptop is fine however my charger snapped right off so now no battery power!!! So, clothes and eyebrows on, off I go to the weekend crowds to buy 1 thing that i cant even afford. Wahhhh
Got super cosy in my cord dungaree/overalls from American Rag
I bought the other week when my skirt tore on the way to work cause I got a phatt ass. Everytime i had walked past their window over the prior week i had been eyeing them off along with a few other pieces.
Small chain: Dalmata
I bought a bunch of necklaces cause they are so affordable and turned out to be super good quality. This ones my daily go to but they have some rad stuff. Cant wait to buy more
Big chain: Tunnel Vision
Socks: Huff x Cheech and Chong x 420
Shoes: Adidas Originals Court Vantage
So I went out and they didnt even have my charger in stock anyway so i ordered one off eBay and went home for movies on the couch after rummaging the house for dvds and a player. Life.
