Last year I acquired about 45 amazing handmade vintage dresses for Georgie Love (story to follow) which have been sitting here with me since October last year and it is my MISSION over the next few weeks to start putting them online. It's going to be tricky since I DON'T have any kind of model to show them off at their best, so I need to figure how to shoot them flat on a board and at their best. I am working on it.
Anyway, it's a New Year, it's VALENTINE'S DAY and I am getting a bit of time back to myself as a parent and small business owner so to celebrate, yep this IS OUR BIGGEST GIVEAWAY EVER.
See! Look at all that goodness smooshed up in that one photo. Can I explain what the WINNER will get.
PIP LINCOLNE! Australian craft icon and all-around-lovely dollface of a Melbourne lady has written a number of brilliant crafty inspiration how-to books and you can win TWO. Both are gorgeous, brand new and ready to inspire you on YOUR OWN crafty journey. Because I love that and believe in Pip and her super ace work in encouraging and inspiring others.
TO HELP YOU CREATE, a small selection of vintage fabrics and teatowels to help you make. There might be more than this in your BOX OF WIN.

VINTAGE PICTURE BOOK BROOCHES because I MADE THESE MYSELF.
GEORGIE LOVE cute earrings, brooch and hair clips.
SHOES! VINTAGE! YELLOW! About a size 8 chosen specifically to go with:
DELIGHTFUL VINTAGE DRESS. GOOD LORD do I wish that I managed to find someone to model this, as my photos of it are JUST SHIT. This is one of my faves from the batch of dresses I have and one of the few store bought vintage dresses in my collection. It has however been completely refashioned by the dressmaker previous owner. This dress is a vintage size 12, but is actually quite generous, it can be belted for a smaller lady for a glorious swishy-swishy look to it, or belted for a fuller figure (to a 14 or maybe even 16?) It is a dress and size that could fit and suit a lot of different sizes and shapes, so that is why I included this particular one.
Clearly though, I need to sort out my dress photography OR a model before I get cracking on these dresses.
