Winter Picknick dress

This is what happens when I make a dress for an occasion whilst watching 3 seasons of Mad Men :-)

Bonnie's Mc Coat & Mc Dress

Since tartan equals comforting childhood memories, I bought the whole stock when I stumbled upon these fabric rolls on the famous Ghent flea market ;-)
My oldest daughter got her Mc Dress about 2 years ago and last winter I made her the Mc Coat.
Motivated by all the lovely comments, I decided to use the whole lot on several sizes for kids...
which resulted in a tiny 'collection' for sale here:-)
I was inspired by Courrèges for the pattern of the dress, making double seams is so much worth the effort...

Gaspard & Antoinette

Grandmothers' cardigans
I found these two fabrics at an old-school shop in the middle of no-where in Belgium.

In memory of my grandmother Antoinette

No thank you, I already have a bag

Go away plastic shoppingbags!

Someone wanted to throw away bags filled with old fabric from a deceased lady.
Luckily, a friend got hold of it before it ended up in waste paradise.
In the bags were wonders of surprise.
For this lady, whom I will call Taant, I gave revival in the form of re-usable shopping bags.

Esperanza futon pleasure

The filling of these pillows consists of kapok, it's a natural material that revives when putting it in the sun.
The combination of two fabrics makes the pillows adjustable to mood & season.
The combo's are made of second-hand cotton, wool, aswell as some rare travelling finds.
The cover is removable and can be washed :-)
These pillows are an ode to Esperanza, the most beautiful place in the world.
