After a long break from markets, Ive been very "slack" to report on all the other happenings on the Sissy and Bro front!
Thanks to some of my very supportive retailers, ( Lamington in Noosa) and Ragamuffins in NZ) to name a few, have been keeping me very busy, not to mention the online orders Ive been receiving. Its been great to see the product is moving nicely into the other States.

Ive been working on new dress designs and skirts recently, tricking up with the usual details I like to add... Im also working on little singlet tops adding a some "sparkle" to them.

There will be some new hats coming soon, cute fish print for the boys and novel details added to the Ryder bucket hat block that always continues to be a hit.
For the girls, more detail added to the hats as well... look out for frilly ruffles, some beading detail to give you a hint.

That's all for now, am back to the sewing machine to finish off some more online orders.

It's back to school/kinder for my lot and what a relief it its. Im feeling the creative juices again and have been pulling out my new fabric buys and itching to try out my new patterns.
I hope to have something new to show very soon!!

The end is near...

Just one more market this Saturday at Sister's Market and 5 more orders to do!

I'm counting the days to christmas. I still havent done my Christmas shopping, but atleast I have the list ready phew!! Next year's focus is less markets and more time on focusing on the direction on Sissy and Bro.

Tiny Tacker's Dancing little chickens skirt

Spring is here!

Sissy and Bro's new spring collection is on the way.... Ive been hunting and gathering some beautiful fabrics and trims and I cant wait to start piecing it all together.

The wonderful Kim Selby aka Kim Selby Photography will be doing the shoot right here in the Macedon Ranges. We have lots of gorgeous little models ready to shoot the runway.

All we need is some nice sunny weather and Kim and the models will do the rest!

We'll also be launching our buntings onto the website and our matching pictures to dress up the walls for the nursery.

The photo above is a taste of our spring range , called the "Sundae Delight" skirt which should be available sometime next month.

Also, a special thanks to Nikki Tandy from Babyology who wrote a fabulous article about us after she popped into to visit our stall at the Sisters Market in Brunswick. There will be some nice little goodies coming your way for your little ones!

Check out Sissy and Bro on Made it

With so little time these days to manage my blog, I have finally put Sissy and Bro on Made it. I have been busy organising new photos for the site to promote our new designs, such as our new transeasonal which I named "Charlie" . Good "unisex" name. (plus one of my friend's little cherub is a "Charlie" and she's a cutey so I had to name one of my blocks after her!! I have featured some of these caps below. With James wearing the navy cord & tartan cap and little Miss Scarlett wearing the wild rose cap. Cant wait to see these featured on the site!!

Sisters Market Brunswick.
Winter is here and what a great day for buying those warm winter pieces! It was a very busy day with lots of sales on our cute little Coco skirt and our new winter cap which we launched recently. The fabrics are nicely mixed and well complimented with their trims. It was a crazy day for bibs and hair accessories too. I will seriously need to get back onto my machine and make up some more beautiful pieces for next week's Sugar and Spice Market in Woodend. I hope to introduce a couple of new pieces for next weeks event.
