Hello there, welcome to my studio, “where the magic happens” (TM… okay, not really). The light in here was just perfect this afternoon when it was time to take my photo – I love the natural lens flare! This is another Bess Georgette vintage dress – one of my earlier acquisitions.
And say hi again to Evie! Here she is wearing all of The Everyday Necklaces, and the parts for my dress I’ve cut out so far. You can see some *bespoke* on the shelves there behind me… the mess of my jewellery-making-area, and some other books. There is a story behind every one of those things around me, and I could tell you what they are… but then, this post would go on forever. And sometimes, a story is best kept to yourself, like a sweet, secret moment that loses its spice when shared. Or maybe I’m just lazy.
My Frocktober Pledge
I have a couple of pledges for Frocktober – which is an annual event to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research:
- Each day I will don a vintage or handmade dress, take a photo, and blog about it here on Epheriell Designs. Considering I’m travelling to Melbourne and Canberra to attend the Problogger Training Day AND attending one of my bestie’s weddings, it’s going to be a frocktabulous month, and I might even be able to drag some other ladies into the fray!
- I am going to sew my very first dress!!! Yes, I am very, very excited about this – and terrified, too! I have the perfect pattern, the perfect fabric – and it’s one of my goals for 2011. This is just the kick in the skirt that I need to get it done!
- At the end of the month I’m going to auction off one of my vintage dress collection, and all the money raised will go into my pledge fund!
