a tunic for me




i have a soft spot for shweshwe fabric and came across shweshwe in black and white. i decided to design a tunic for myself, the result is fabulous and i can't stop wearing it.
...

soos julle seker al agtergekom het, het ek 'n sagte plekkie vir shweshwe materiaal. ek het swart en wit shweshwe materiaal gevind en besluit om vir my 'n tunic {g'n idee wat dit in afrikaans is nie}  te ontwerp. ek is mal oor die eindproduk.

more enamelware eye candy





i found another stunning shop called labour and wait, in london that has a beautiful collection of vintage and vintage look but new, products. browse around on their online shop. the pics above are a few of my enamelware favourites.

...

ek het weer op 'n pragtige winkel afgekom wat ou goed of goed wat oud lyk, maar hulle is splinternuut, afgekom. ek het 'n paar fototjies van die emaljegoed vir julle gepost. daar is natuurlik vele meer pragtige ou/nuut-ou goete, gaan kyk bietjie hier.

shweshwe dresses for my girls



i decided to design dresses for my 2 little girls because i got tired of all the pink and purple dresses that was available in the affordable shops in wellington and paarl. i found lovely shweshwe fabric and drew the designs. Jennie, the seamstress that always help me and my friends with sewing work did a great job in making them. my daughters love their new dresses.
...

waar begin ek met die storie. elke keer as my dogtertjies klere nodig het en ek gaan na die winkels wat ek kan bekostig, is daar net pink en pers rokkies. toe besluit ek, ek gaan materiaal soek en vir my meisiekinders rokkies ontwerp. hier is hulle nou, gemaak deur 'n wonderlike tannie met die naam Jennie, wat presies volgens my sketse gewerk het.
