Out and about

About a fortnight ago I ventured down to the Gold Coast and visited the The Fabric Shop  at Robina.  This shop has a good range of quality fabrics that anyone who likes to sew will love.  It also has helpful and friendly staff which makes the fabric shopping experience so pleasurable .  I was really drawn to the range of bright cotton floral fabrics which are perfect for our hot summers.

I bought some of this…


and some of this…


I couldn’t resist this..


and didn’t want to miss out on this…


and I just loved this…


which altogether looks like a big heap of this!


As you can probably guess I left the Fabric Shop one very happy sewing lady 🙂

I can’t wait to start sewing with these fabrics and have already decided that the first cab off the rank will be this…

001So hang onto your coconuts its hula time!

By the way…

There are some excellent fashion exhibitions on display around the country at the moment:

Brisbane has scored really well with 30 Years of Japanese Fashion on display at the Gallery of Modern Art until February 2015, and Costumes from the golden age of Hollywood showing at Queensland Museum until May 2015.

The National Gallery in Melbourne has an exhibition of The world of Jean Paul Gaultier until February 2015 and Adelaide has Fashion Icons: Masterpieces from the Musee Des Arts showing until February 2015.

They all sound fantastic.  I went to the Valentino exhibition in Brisbane a couple of years ago (actually I went to it 3 times!) and loved it.  Hopefully I will get to see some of these exhibitions too.

Time to get on with my sewing…..







About Sew it up Buttercup

I love to sew and I love to talk about sewing. I also love reading about fashion designers and how they develop their ideas.
