In the middle of production

I have been sewing up a storm lately, which has been going quite well. Hopefully by next week I will have 3 different tops to go to stores. I also have a photo shoot this weekend. So my next post should be a lot more pretty.

busy busy!

As usual, I've been busy busy! I just got back from the International Textiles Expo in Las Vegas this week. Luckily some of my best friends are also in the apparel industry, and have clothing lines. So we made the trip into a mini vacation. It was my first time visiting Las Vegas, and I had a blast. Even more exciting then getting out of town for a couple of days was finding fabric. I was able to purchase the rest of my needs for late spring/summer and all fall/winter items. I am SO excited to work with the rad prints I found.

I have begun production on my spring/summer line. Here is the first fabric cut, which I sewed the majority of this weekend. Just need to hem and label, and it is boutique ready.

Lately I have been really into making fun items for friends. It's nice to get out of production sewing for a moment and make things without a pattern or directions. I made this Tiki tote for my friend Marci for her birthday. She is the co-owner of Sputnik Housewares, and has been on a major Tiki kick. I added the rick rack, because I have been putting it on anything I can.

Back to sewing!
