I don't know about you, but I usually love the shift in atmosphere as the seasons change, especially here in Melbourne. As Summer approaches for us in the southern hemisphere, the excitement for the arrival of beach weather is quite obviously marred by everybody's preoccupation with the 'busy' season. There are Christmas gifts to be bought, shopping mall parking to be fought over and plenty work parties to attend. I myself am attempting to avoid most of these December obligations however we all know it is not entirely possible!Read More

This is very exciting for me! I am finally releasing my first sewing pattern which officially make The Wearable STUDIO an indie sewing pattern company. Wooohoo!
I could not be happier to see my teeny little dream come alive. This moment has been long anticipated but taking my time to develop my blocks and this pattern to the highest quality has been extremely important.
The Franki Top is the embodiment of our design style. She is easy to wear (hence the name Wearable!) but has elements of elegance and femininity. I design pieces based on what I love to wear. Being on-trend has not ever been of much importance to me however being comfortable enough to maintain an active lifestyle whilst looking 'put-together' are. These are the kinds of patterns you can look forward to in the future.
The Franki Top is blouse-like top with a roomy, boxy cut. She comes with two options: Versions 1 which has three-quarter sleeves with a pretty keyhole and tie detail as well as a ruffle on the hem.
Version 2 is a simple, pared down option which is cropped at the waist with short sleeves. Both versions feature a "hi-lo" hemline.
Mix up elements from each versions to create your own unique piece too.
For those who are prone to a little bit of animal cuteness, here is the namesake for my first pattern.

Who doesn't love beautiful wedding pics so stay tuned as I will be sharing some of the photos from the day in a blog post as soon as I get them.Read More
