The Miss Gingers Blog
I Had such a lovely weekend at the market this week. Really great customers, who showed me what they had made from my fabrics. One Thing I enjoy seeing is the dresses made for little girls. Such a different range of fabrics that have been used, some now out of stock. But I think there is enough to choose from to make something equally wonderful.
I Stock most of the Merchant and Mills paper patterns and have made a few for myself as well. I find the patterns really good quality and most importantly that they are well written and easy to follow. The company are British and based in the beautiful town of Rye. Where Mapp and Lucia was based and filmed (I do love a random fact!) ha!
There Patterns for both Man and women. Personally I find the shapes quite classic in style which makes it easy to add a little of your own flare. The top 64 looks fab in the
denim hickory though I am just about to make it in a lightweight floral fabric.
One of my favourite is the Camber dress. super easy and one I recommend to beginners. Its really flexible as your can make it as a dress or a top , and once confident it is a pattern you can play with, adding pockets or a flare. I think it also looks great in funky fabric – which of course I adore!
AKA Miss Ginger
It has been all go here at Miss Ginger’s. So much has happened I don’t know where to start! I suppose this being my first post on a new blog is a that start.
After moving house (wow that was hard!) I am now settled into my new house and concentrating hard on Miss Ginger’s and loving every minute.
One of the high lights was bringing new products, just so exciting. I had admired Alexander Henry fabrics for a while and was very excited to start stocking it. I think the delivery driver was a little shocked at how exactly how excited I was when it arrived! I immediately put it on line and took it to Greenwich Market where it seems lots of people love it!
One customer has made this lovely little girls dress using the Paloma fabric from Alexander Henry. I am looking forward to seeing more. I have just made a dress for someone, order at greenwich. I will show you soon!
This is a test… New Blog Page Coming Soon.
