You will have to excuse the bad photo`s, but i just wanted to show you the 1st sample of the new wendy dress with sleeves which will be three quarter, and a scoop neckline.
The main problem is the sleeve so i`ll be off to see the pattern drafter in the next week or two for another go. I can see it dressed up with a belt , beautiful bag and a killer pair of shoes. I`m off to check out shoe shops online.

Do you ever set targets for your business? I do
July last year i decided i wanted to make and sell 200 dresses.
Not really, 180 and counting and hoping to make the last 20 by July the 1st.
The only thing is that this July i want to set a new target of 350 and still be making them myself.
Being at Sew it Together really made me realise that i only really want to make dresses out of beautiful fabrics, and take it from a hobby wage to a full time wage, which will be the hard part.
The last few weeks i`ve been working through, how i`m going to make this happen.
One of the ways is focusing on a few core styles which i`ll introduce you to over the coming weeks , some of them you will have already seen and some may have had the odd tweak to them like the Wendy dress with a three quarter sleeve.
I`m going to go and set some more realistic targets now like doing the dishes every night for the rest of the year.
THAT REALLY WOULD MAKE ME BONKERS!!

I have finally put together some more stash bags. These include fabric from Amy Buttler , Tula Pink and Valorie Wells Linen. There are about six good size pieces in each bag. They are instore at The Olive Grove for $10 or you can email me and i can post them to you . I`m checking the postage within Australia on Monday, i`m sure it won`t be more than $4 i can also post overseas.
