Hi All!

Okay, so May didn’t go quite according to my #MMMAY16 goal. I really wanted to be able to to make an indie pattern every week, and wear and photograph something different everyday, but alas, even the best plans don’t always go as you wanted. I’m pretty happy with how well I did, and I still have lots of plans to get making those indie patterns this summer (there may or may not be a cut and ready to sew Carolyn pyjama pattern sitting in a heap at the end of my ironing table). But May was just not the month to do it all! I had other things to do in May!

What I have been doing in May is getting sick (boo!), spending time with friends and family in the beautiful spring weather (yay!). And getting a whole pile of work done! I’ve had so many new products come in, and I’m in the middle of putting so many new things up!

I have my new foam!!

A gorgeous microfiber laminated foam imported from France, I can’t wait to use it in all my swimwear this month <3, you’ll see the first swimsuit tomorrow!

Also I have some other bits for swimwear :

My favourite swimwear elastic by the meter 🙂


And I’ve added another size to my triangle bikini cups! I now have them in small, medium and large with 5″, 6″ and 7″ cross-cups!

Not to mention I’m going to be releasing a TON of new swimwear to buy by the meter and in swimwear kits!!

And another exciting release! The Orange Wire!!


These are the wires that are designed to go in the amazing Marlborough and Boylston bra patterns designed by the lovely Norma Loehr over at Orange Lingerie. These are very similar to my popular Round Wire, but they are a little shorter at the centre front, making them the perfect fit to the pattern!
I’m so excited that I could get the perfect wires in, I love Norma’s patterns, and I’ve seen so many people have great success with them!!
Well that’s a little taste of what’s been coming in to the studio, but I feel like there is so much more to share. I’m planning to make June a really fun month. June is my birthday month, June is the start of the summer, June is swimwear month (my fav!!) and I really want to get making some cool things, get more active on my social media, and connect with all of you!!
What are your plans for June?
How was your May?
