Louisa dress tour day #2 + update Lotte Martens fabrics project

By 10/12/2015Blog

More Louisas for you: stunning dresses sewn by amazing ladies. Laura is a sweetheart. Every one that ever met her knows that. For me it was the first time that I saw Els in real life and I hope we’ll keep in touch. :) As a gift, she got this Louisa dress from me. The very first Louisa ever! And last but absolutely not least, I got the chance to meet Marieke. She drove I think about 3 hours one way to be present on the testers’ day. Together with this other great Dutch blogger. My god: I had so much fun talking to them. :) When will we meet again, ladies!? The sooner, the better…

And as some of you already know, Lotte & I are working on a project together. Have you seen these preview pictures on my Instagram account? Then you might be wondering why we didn’t launch anything yet. Well: after sewing the first test dresses, I had to conclude that the fabric we used didn’t match with the pattern. Nothing wrong with the fabric itself, nothing wrong with the pattern, but they’re just not best friends! ;) So Lotte & I are looking for a new fabric to use for a unique Compagnie M. screen printing project. We only want to deliver a perfect result, so that’s why we have postponed the project. Our new target is set in a couple of months, but as Lotte is about to become a mother for the 3rd time (congrats Lotte), we can’t make any promises timing wise. We will only launch when we are both 100% satisfied, but I hope we’ll launch somewhere at the end of the winter. :) I’ll keep you posted. That’s a promise.

    Mah, wat een schoon complimentje *bloos*… Bedankt om me deel te laten uitmaken van je testersevent!
    Ik vond het leuk je nog eens terug te zien en ben super blij met mijn geslaagd kleedje (dankzij jouw patroontje en deskundige uitleg!)
