Simply experimenting... with new designs




The weekend just gone was my last one spruiking my wares at The Rocks.  It was a killer weekend to finish, with a stinking hot day on Saturday before a "cool change" came through and blew half my stand away.  Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humour!


It's time to get organised for the move to Melbourne, plus most of the dresses have sold, which were my main reason for doing The Rocks.  I do still have a few North Shore dresses left on sale (no more Nancy Rose sorry).  Let me know if you are interested.  I am happy to mail or lend them out for you to try on first.   My Simply Phoebe have gone pretty well, but the general crowd was a little too mainstream to make it worthwhile selling them alone (and giving up two whole days a weekend).  


I'm hoping to do one more market before I leave at the Eveleigh Artisans Market, held monthly at Carriageworks.  Will keep you posted.


In the meantime, I've had a couple of days off thanks to the Australia Day holiday.  Amongst a little socialising, I've also had the luxury of experimenting with a few new ideas.  The main one is extending the use of the fabric tubes, but going bigger and bolder by stuffing them with material offcuts and polystyrene balls for an extra chunky effect.  I am calling them Simply Sia, in honour of my work-in-progress creation for Sia, (click here for the background story).  They're still a work-in-progress, but here's some snaps.  I'd love to hear what you think.













Simply yours,
Phoebe
