Made for a Friend

I made this dress for a client who wanted it as a gift for her friend
The dress it made from batik cotton with pleated detail at front neckline and gathered waitline, pockets at side seam and belt made with two contrasting print fabric and edge trim forming the extention to fasten the blet.

I think you will agree that she love the dress judging by her comments
Comments: Finally arrived in the mail today and the dress is even more gorgeous in person!! I can't WAIT to give this to my friend! She's going to love it, for sure!!.........I'll let you know what her reaction is to the dress, but I already know she's going to love it. :) Seriously, excellent craftmanship. I might be contacting you again soon to propose another dress project!! I'm working on final fashion illustrations right now. :) I can show it to you later on and see if it's something you think  you could do.............Gave my friend the dress today and as predicted, she absolutely LOVED it!! She loved the fabrics we chose and was admiring the design of the dress. She couldn't believe what an excellent copy it was of the original Anthropologie dress. :) It's definitely a keeper.

Thank you so much for your hard work! :) I really appreciate it!!

I would love to hear what you think of the dress.

My Blogging Diary

I have never had the inclination to write a diary or a journal, but the blog have enable me to see what I have achieved over the past year and unlike a diary it does not include my whole life, only the bits I choose to share. 1: It would bore you all to bits if I blogged about my every action. 2: There are sections of my life which would be unacceptable to share, some of which would compromise my working role and 3: Well I am sure there is a 3 and more, but I cant think of any right now.

However along the way I have met some great bloggers, and I have appreciated everyone comments, and like good friend, your comments are an inspiration in motivating me to continue blog and show off my creations. I am not stupid, as I know it is not to everyone taste, and the comments reflect the honesty of those who comment.

I have also learnt what HTML is, how to add a photo and text link, yeh is easy now that I know and there is so much more that I have learned, and I hope to learn even more.

Looking at what I have achieved over the year I feel I need to set some goal for 2011, so here goes.

1: I must change the carpet in the hall and the lounge, not sure whether to put carpet or laminate down.

2: Must must build a new shed, the old one has no door and there are gaps between the frame and the windows.

3: I am planning on moving Jobs- need to look seriously this year

4:  Organize my fabric stash

5: Resist the temptation to buy new fabric - no this is not possible, scrap five

5: Make some  new stock for my shop as I am attending several fairs this year

You know something I feel that's enough for now, this leaves room for improvement and change.
I write on here as it is a recording of my intentions, rather bubbles in the wind.  I will be letting you all know if I achieve any or all these goals.

Wishing you all the best for 2011
