craft hangover

brita likened the post-crafty bastards sensation to a hangover, and she's absolutely right. saturday was like a really, really good party, and now we're in recovery. while we scramble to find fabric for all our custom orders, i expect this space will lay a bit fallow.

in the meantime, threads and snippets is picking up the slack with a wonderful post on all of the insane fashion talent at the show. we're honored to be included in the mix, and wish we'd had time to check out more of our fellow crafty bastards' booths. like how amazing was this:

thanks again to the hello craft folks, who organized the heck out of that show, and to everyone who came out to see us, everyone who bought from us, and everyone who's gotten in touch since. we're feeling pretty giddy.


in good company

the crafty bastards vendor list just posted, and it's a pretty insanely great collection of artists and craftspeople. i'm starting to assemble my christmas shopping list; anyone want to be my shopping surrogate that day? i'll start with this:


new fabric

so delicious, and a little dangerous....

a sweet little etsy treasury

our ice cream social dress has been included in a lovely collection of ice cream-themed items on etsy: thanks to forgivingworks for curating the treasury:
in other news, our parasol dress is off to a new home. it was the first dress we made (and really a team effort, as coralie and i both worked on that first version), and so it's sweet to see it fly the coop. Thanks @rg!

our etsy shop went live last night, and we've already had interest from as far away as australia (a sweet thing, as coralie bought the original thrift-store dress, on which we based the coralilie design, down under)! check out
