Goodness from Australia

A few weeks ago Australia-based Sew Tessuti were celebrating their 18th birthday...and I was lucky enough to win one of their celebration giveaways...where I was permitted to pick any Japanese pattern book of my choosing from their extensive collection. What a wonderful win!

After much pondering, in the spirit of selflessness (but we all know how much fun small ones are to sew really, this was just as much for me as it was for her), I chose this pattern book of dresses suited for small Zebra-girl and then we excitedly waited for the patterns to find their way over the seas.

It's just as lovely as I had hoped that it might be. And Zebra-girl has been leafing through it too, picking out things that she'd like to wear.

We both agreed that this was our favourite.

If you haven't already, then do go and look at the Sew Tessuti blog, it's one of my recently-discovered favourites...I'm not going to put a straight link in though, as the cuteness that they've been showing in this post is too wonderful not to see right this moment, so I'm diverting you, with the suspicion that you'll fall over yourself, just as I did, at quite how wonderful one of their customer's most recent dressmaking escapades proved to be.

Thank you, Colette - I love my pattern book. Happy 18th year.

  2. I am looking forward to a visit to Tessuti in person next week, as I return to Sydney for a couple of weeks. May even bump into my old street neighbour Collete.
