What a wonderful afternoon we had today! My only gripe was that 2 hours felt like 15 minutes and was all over in the flash! We had 26 lovely ladies come along… so lets see some pictures!
|Deb, Judy, Emily, Paula, Jenny, Claire, Erin and Sasky
Not only was there a delicious high tea to enjoy… but some seriously lovely sartorial creations, by both some well-known faces and many new ones too. In fact, there was almost an equal ‘civilian’ to blogger ratio! Plus quite a few bloggers I’d yet to meet whose pennings (and whose abilities with the english language are far beyond my own) I love to read – like Jenny and Emily.
Sewing Society in attendance – I would say in no particular order, but actually it was the order of RSVPing because that’s the order of my list ;)
Rachel from MyMessings
Kat from All the Whimsical Things
Belle from Bella’s Collectanea
Sarah from Sew Squirrel
Julia from Julia Bobbin
Rachel from Boo Dog and Me
Leith from Sew Brunswick
Oahn from Unique Schmuck
Anna from Blogless Anna
Jenny from Rennous Oh Glennous
Belinda from Turquoise Polkadots
Lara from Thornberry
Emily from This is Emily Kate
Liz from Busy Lizzy in Brissie
It was so, so lovely to meet so many new people (apologies from TJ and Tricia who couldn’t make it) and have a good ol’ fashioned oogle some gorgeous frocks.
|Kat, all the way from NZ!
In spirit, we also have Kat from the Engineer’s Other Life – we went to uni together but these days she lives across the pond in New Zealand. And I think her Vogue 1159 is a great example of how the ‘right’ pattern can make you look amazing!! I’d totally wolf whistle you on here if I could, Kat!
There was even a little up-skirting… but only because we all love a tulle crinoline!
So… See you all again at the 2014 SewcieTea? ;)
And if you can’t wait that long, or were unable to make it this time around – we’re organising ‘Frocktails’ later in the year – lock September 7th in your diaries!
