Sewing Adventures

Long time no sew!
(sorry, couldn't help myself) But in all seriousness it has been a while since I really sat down and got comfortable with the sewing machine... I've been feeling a bit burnt out sewing-wise and too busy with other projects. However I began to get terribly inspired from these patchwork and embroidery books:
And decided to sew new yoga bags for the shop and an upcoming market (more on this soon) I give you Tudor Roses and Apple Love:
And a little peek at the fabric for bags to come:
I've also whipped up two pairs of cotton pants for stretching and slinking around in the house (for slinking is exactly what one must do when wearing purple pants)
In other sewing adventures I want to spend a moment or two praising the gentle handiwork of etsy seamstress Lirola - who made this delightful dress for me in black to my exact measurements:

It is soft and lovely, and those pleats! Oh, I would happily take one of everything from her shop...
