business card love

I just love receiving packages and this week has been no exception. I've had so many orders of fabric arrive this week along with a small package of my new business cards. But not only have I been receiving packages, but I've also been sending them too. I hope my packages bring a smile to ones face, as they do to me.

A little blog post about why I started 'little miss gee' and some advice on living your dreams and doing what you love.

Retro and vintage love

Welcome to Ozone Bazaar - a heavenly new store situated in country Victoria, right in the heart of Warrnambool's CBD. At first glance you may assume it is a tiny antique and junk store but look closer and you'll see a huge mix of gorgeous items that are full of charm and character.

Ozone Bazaar is a treasure trove of antique and retro furniture, ornaments, textiles, clothes and art from a variety of eras past. It's full of great vintage designer pieces to spice up any decor. I could spend hours in here foraging amongst all it's pieces.

So if you live in Warrnambool, and haven't already found this treasure, then is definitely worth a visit. You can find them at Ozone Walk Alley, Warrnambool. If you don't live in Warrnambool don't despair, you can forage through all their lovely pieces and buy online here or check out their facebook page.

I hope you enjoy this store as much as I do.

Pattern Review - New Look 6356

Here it is finally!

I finished my misses top made up of an Amy Butler cotton fabric. I began making this in a Tessuti's Sew Inn class and just finished it this morning. It was my first time working from a pattern and it was defiantly a challenge.

Although I could have made it a little smaller, it still fits quite perfect in a loose way. The pattern was a stretch for my beginner sewing skills, but with help from class it came together without too many incidents.

The neckline and arms took me a while to nut out (ie. it took numerous readings and re-readings of the instructions and lots of studying pictures in my sewing book). It was my first time sewing a zipper too which turns out, is not so hard! I also modified the length and made it shorter to suit my shape.

I'm so glad I persisted, I'm feeling very pleased with myself!
