I am the Mummy of 2, soon to be 3, very free-spirited children. My big boy, Braxton (3 years old) and Miss Micki Rose (18 months old). Together with my Husband, William, we live in a remote mining town in the middle of Western Australia, called Tom Price, where your nearest major fabric store is an 16 hour drive away! Needless to say the internet is my best friend when it comes to shopping!
I have to admit I haven’t been in the sewing game all that long, my love for sewing all started when I found out I was having a baby girl 2 years ago and from there I haven’t stopped creating. There is no better feeling then when you have finished an item and knowing that you created that magnificent item from scratch.
I started off sewing harem pant sets for my babies and from there things took off. Friends and people in our small town started requesting items and that’s when I decided to turn this little hobby into a small business. If you spoke to my husband, he would definitely say I have a fabric addiction, I just love sourcing vintage and unique fabrics, intricate lace trimmings, doilies and delicate embellishments. I love anything vintage, unique and playful florals, light cotton fabrics and all things girly! I remember the very first piece of fabric I purchased was from the Jennifer Paganelli Lucky Girl line, Vintage Marcella. My Mum and I sat up late one night making a cute little pair of Vinties (overalls) with a doily yoke and pearl buttons. That is definitely where my love for all things Jennifer Paganelli started.
If I was asked to describe my children’s label, I would say it has a unique, boho vintage feel for the free-spirited bubbas out there. My most favourite items to create would have to be my rompers, they have a very whimsical bohemian feel to them! I try to ensure each item is one of a kind and when possible, try not to duplicate things.
