Brisbane and New Look 6704

... and sew it seams that time gets away, and my blogging has been neglected ... too much to do ... starting with a quick trip to Brisbane, and my mission was to purchase fabric ..... found this in Michelton - Funky Fabrix indeed .....

.. and this is what I got .... I'm thinking ...... bags? Too obvious? Oh well ......

I also went to Indooroopilly - to a fab shop SCKAFS .... it's quite unusual to find a very well stocked and busy fabric shop in the middle of large shopping centre - but there it was .... I purchased quite a few dress lengths of this and that - photos of which will hopefully appear in due course ..... one of my finds was a lovely knit - creamy background - cool sketch like flowers in colours reminiscent of books from my childhood .... anyway, my 12 year old sweet pea wrapped it around herself and tied a knot in it and wore it out to dinner that night .... why can't I do that? Sorry about her face - my Photoshop skills are ...... well, I don't have any!
I am wearing a BWF top in a metallic knit from Chic Fabrique - Central Coast, NSW ...
And another fabric shop - I LOVE BRISBANE!!! This one was new apparently, can't remember the name - it is next door to BIOME - which is another great shop full of cleverly designed, recycled type goodies - it is on Adelaide Street .... I got a great digital print with big big flowers for a bias skirt I hope ...

Now, here is New Look 6704, View E in fabric from SCKAFS Brisbane - its a decent weight woven with a touch of Spandex ... there is a faint phrase repeat behind the images "We live in a fashion world" - can't argue with that!

I cut a size 14 and it was very straightforward to sew together - I like it!
... Still in Brisbane, and on my morning walk I was a tad excited to see this poster .....

It was a lovely Sunday - Sunday? Sunday? The exhibition was NOT OPEN ON SUNDAY ..... ? Crazy but true - I just might have to go back!


  1. SOunds like a fun time!

    Love the latest New Look number. I wish those patterns would fit me..... or maybe it's more that I wish I fitted standard sizes!

  2. Is it Gardhams in Brisbane? I love that shop. Beautiful fabrics at the front and magnificent fabrics up the back.


Please leave a comment .... thankyou!
