Next best thing to really being there... I've just listed more large vintage scarf cushions, these are souvenirs from Belgium, Switzerland, Mallorca and Djibouti.  Now where's my suitcase?

Escenas Flamencas


I love this one - large vintage scarf cushion made from a Spanish souvenir.

Flying High


This one's made from a retro silk Oroton scarf designed for Qantas airlines, it looks great with the Vera silk scarf cushion.

Tee Dress from Marc Jacobs Panel


I was looking through my fabrics yesterday and found three Marc Jacobs printed cotton single-knit panels that I bought in Wellington.  Have been meaning to whip up some oversized t-shirts so here is my first run... I'll be travelling with a pile of these wash-n-wear gems next trip.  mb

The Great Kaftan Experiment


I've been throwing together kaftans for myself over the past 6 months or so and now I'm looking to perfect my pattern to start producing them for others.  There's a rack of beautiful luxury silks I'm working my way through... here's the first one, more to come.  mb

More Workspace...

 
 

I've dotted photos and trinkets around my workspace.  These are some shots from my New Zealand costume days... a play on Victorian undergarments using modern fabrics. mb
