Special delivery!

25 Aug

I don’t know about you, but my day is always brightened when a delivery arrives at my desk – especially when it’s a couple of boxes like these!

Delivery boxes

 

So what’s in the boxes hey? That’s the big question :)

1. Sven clogs

Ever since I saw Sarai’s beautiful silver Sven clogs, I was all like, “oh lordy, I gots to get me a pair of those!”. So when I saw them on sale at Fab, I snapped a pair right up. Unfortunately Fab doesn’t ship to little old Australia, but fear not, that’s where USA Shopping Affair comes in – thank you very much!

2. Tracing paper galore

I’m a bit tardy in actually completing my bombshell dress – fitting is getting me down – and I had really crappy tracing paper to work with, but I took it upon myself to order some what is hopefully amazingly useful waxed tracing paper from Richard the Thread, one of the suppliers Gertie recommends in the course. The minimum order was $35, so I think I now have enough tracing paper to last a lifetime… in three different colours.

 3. Wiksten Patterns

I know you can download these little beauties, but I’m a bit old school and like to have my hands wrapped around something concrete. Kollabora was having a sale, so I grabbed these and added to my order sitting with USA Shopping Affair.

So that’s what’s in the box! Now, let’s get sewing hey :)

      I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet, but it can’t be any worse than rubbish chalk one I have! From watching the craftsy vids, I think it’s going to knock my socks off.

    Hi Zoe,
    I live in Brisbane and am about to embark on the Bombshell dress. I’ve just started looking for supplies and saw this post. If you have more tracing paper than you really need, I would be interested in buying some off you and sharing the cost?
    If you are, feel free to email me – kristalreynolds@hotmail.com
    Cheers, Kristal

    oh those clogs are amazing! Good luck with the bombshell dress. I watched all the videos twice and got my fabric but I am scared! silly really. Maybe in a few weekend times I can finally commit. :P

      I have everything ready to go, and am playing with the bust fitting. But I don’t have a mannequin and it’s been freezing here (and I was cracking it lol) so it’s been put to the side for a break – for now! Videos are great aren’t they! I’m sure you’ll be fine :) I have falled in love with the whole thread tracing process…
