Gettin' in to the groove again...

I'm getting quicker.... I think! At the whole have an idea, cut it out then make it, thing.
It's funny how when you sit down to sew after a spell you've sort of need to get you're groove on again. But once you do, you get into the flow and there's no stoppin yah.

Today I finished my flamingo skirts and matching tops ready for the shop tomorrow. They turned out so nice.
I decided to ditch the guipure trim and just go with a twin stitch in the white. Makes it not so dressy...a bit more of a wear any wear outfit.

I was soooo tempted to add red or teal buttons on the top cause it was coming across all a bit too conservative, but I'm glad I didn't cause now the splash of color can be the customers choice.
One could wear it with a striking red coat, a funky teal cardi or chunky green beads.
I like that idea.

It's my favourite Finki ensemble so far.


  1. looking good Jay - def have your groove on! Am sure they will sell like hotcakes!

  2. I love the stripe you've used for the top. Black & white is where it's at!

  3. Your stuff is great Jay. You inspire me & have made me remember that I was once a patternmaker during my years in the ragtrade. If only I could get off my butt & sew something for myself?
    I hope I get a chance to come & check out the real deal in the future. Keep creative!! Ky

  4. WOW!!! Jay I'm loving your clothing range especially the skirts!! They are lovely!!

  5. Jay.....it's gorgeous. I looked at the photos and went "I want one!" of each :-) Keep up the great work. Will have to try to make it over to the shop quick smart.
