Baby showers are the kind of events you either love, or avoid. Baby talk and no booze, I tended to favour the latter. Great food was all I could think about when my sister began organising my babes shower - cupcakes, pumpkin pie, chocolate brownies, cake pops, cheesecake, berry tarts, caramel popcorn, lemon slice, eclairs, raspberry muffins - and thats just for the sweet tooth. I could not even imagine how fun the day could be, and I really understood the "shower" in baby shower, as I unwrapped gift after gorgeous gift - my lovely lady friends really made me and babes feel so special and loved.
my dearest friend celebrated her 29th birthday this week - begging the 'gift' question. Just about all the most beautiful things I own were gifted by this girl, whom has exquisite style & taste - so when I was browsing one of my fav blogs, Kayture, and saw this image and the striking royal blue coat, my hand went straight to paper. I have no idea where said coat is from, but I found the most gorgeous cashmere wool blend felt at Tessuti's and constructed this jacket from eye just in time for birthday Daniella's party. Happy with the result I may have to construct a pattern and add this to my next collection
framed sketch & coat - thats a (gift) wrap!
In just 6 months my twin sister Saci will be tying the knot with her beau of 5 years. We are in the midst of wedding fever designing and making her wedding dress - which I have to admit has been the most of fun in the sewing room I've ever had. Heavily pregnant now, I rely on her more than ever, as everything takes that much longer and any baby kicks have me instantly forgetting what I'm doing.
