making


im just going to begin typing words and see where i end up...
 ive been back making ladies wrap dresses again. playing around with embroideries and placing deep pockets on an updated folksy style. im loving making these once more plus they are selling faster than i can make them, which helps, only thing is i cant seem to stop, and neither are the orders. ive never stuck at making something for so long before now. i usually move on very quickly.


 just between you and i, ladies have been waiting for me to make more of this wrap style
 as far back as october last year. eeek
and i didnt feel like making them. double eeek.
 well im so glad thats all changed around now and ive got my sewjo back in full swing.
can someone please come up with another word to replace sewjo?
ill be most grateful.


i got this red fabric overseas when i was in a holiday mood. can you tell?
its not my usual type of print is it...


realising that mexicana is in trend right now im going to part with some much-coveted-by-me embroideries
for some dresses, however ive been saying that for about a month and have yet to cut one up.


this was one that sold before id finished making it. boy thats a terrible blurry shot (sorry).
the whole peter pan collar thing is not me, but ill now happily make them for others. only not joyfully or gleefully.
i had been fighting against doing this type of doiley placement for so long, but ill concede and give you ladies what you want. give me the folksy vibe over twee anyday.



this shot is from a day of making on instagram.

join me on there as smallforestshop if you like :)
see... im even doing smiley faces in here now because of its influence!

catch you!

Wendy I love seeing your dresses. They are such a practical wear which is probably part of their popularity, as well as them being gorgeous!!! I have been wearing mine for a few years now i think. I love it over skinny jeans with flats or dressed up with sandals. Winter i put a long top under it and wear it with tights. okay I'll look you up on instagram I think.

Thank you for the feature!! I don't know how I missed this! I was searching through your Favs and came across this post and saw my piece. I was moving during that week so I guess I wasn't reading my daily blog reads as much. office furniture Brisbane really appreciate it :)
