Toile-y Thursday

So, as I'm sure you know by now (coz it's all we've been talking about) we're all 'Stitches & Craft' atm, BUT we have also got this rather exciting exhibition opening/salon show on Tuesday the 17th of March.

The deal is that we've gotta make some real-live, actual clothes to show off our totally awesome prints, pretty much by tomorrow! EEP!! There'll be a whole bunch of other awesome, local, indy, No Sweatshop designers gear there, so if you're in the vicinity come to NMBQ @ 57 Smith St before 7pm to catch the show!!

Saying that, we've known about this for months, but y'know how time just slips away and all of a sudden - BAM! - it's March and oh crap, there's those two big shows within two days of each other...

Anyhoo, so we've been having fun designing skirts and playing with toiles and I thought you'd like a peek at the craziness!

Larz kickin' that zips butt for me! (I really suck at zips, Lara has the skillz)

Bee in Toile
Speaking of butt's, here's Bee wondering if hers looks big in my poofy toile, version 2 (no Bee, it doesn't)

you've got some lovely combos going on there. I wish I could come help - I would love to get my hands on some of that great fabric!

LOVE the design of the first one in particular. You girls really need to do up some patterns of these to sell, or even kits of them. They totally rock. Goodluck for next week.
