This khaki fabric is made up of a blend of cotton and a hint of lycra, it has a light crinkled appearance on the surface giving it an interesting texture and the great thing about this fabric is that it does not crease easily. I decided to make a little belted off the shoulder dress with some matte bronze sequins on the sleeve and a basic adjustable tie dress with a floral brooch.

The colour of this fabric is a pearl grey which leans slightly towards green, it is a very fine and matte lace that falls really nicely. I decided to keep the silhouettes simple because the lace design itself is already quite a lot just on its own. I managed to get two little dresses, a waistcoat, a little clutch bag and a few floral brooches out of the last few metres that were left on the roll in the shop. I really wish there had been a little more left; it is such a relaxing, fresh colour.
These pieces are made from a fresh minty chiffon, giving the blouse and the little dress some transparency. I added some cotton lace and an elasticated waistline to the blouse as well as a floral brooch, a white braided jersey belt and transparent plastic beads to the little dress.
These pieces are made from a peachy 100% cotton which has very fine cream pinstripes. The fabric is very light which makes it perfect for a little blouse and a summer dress with braided jersey belts as well as a little waistcoat. The floral appliqués are actually brooches which can be re-arranged as desired.

I love this fabric, it looks like denim but it is actually just a lightweight 100% cotton crepe which is great because it has the denim look but without being too stiff or too hot. I added some cotton lace as embellishment to the little shorts and the blouse for a nostalgic, vintage feel.

These strappy silver sandals were used for my final fashion show in Florence a few years ago, I originally had eight pairs which were quickly distributed once I got back to Mauritius. Having two pairs of size 39 left, I decided to play around with them and to add some floral chiffon accessories to the ankle straps to give them a little sparkly touch.
When I found this lovely turquoise lace, how could I not turn it into little princess dresses? The colour is so stunning and fresh, and what I love most about this fabric is that is is matte. I was so excited while working on these pieces that I decided to make a little clutch bag and floral accessories with the left over fabric to match the garments.
