mollysmaison Just what every home needs, a doodle-made burger trinket box. It was a squeaky toy a very short time ago, but she has nibbled all around the edge and left a nice hinged lid. Please contact me if you'd like Molly to make you one 4h

mollysmaison A closer shot showing my mannequin's label. I wonder what beautiful garments she wore in the 30's at Galeries Lafayette? #adornbysarahb 3d

mollysmaison Much excitement yesterday when my very vintage 1930's mannequin torso arrived from France. I've been without wine, flowers and mid year sales shopping so I could afford her! She was made by French company Stockman for department store Galeries Lafayette. Perfect for styling my #adornbysarahb scarves and jewellery. Tres belle! 3d
  •   lazydesigner I love her. I wish for an old wooden mannequin for my Windows displays but can't find one i can afford. Imagine how much your mannequine has seen, all the beautiful dresses she wore while in france... 3d
  •   mollysmaison @lazydesigner thanks Bobbi. Yes I was wondering what beautiful dresses she might have worn. The lady I bought her from sources them for customers. Mine was very affordable, even with postage to Australia. I found her on etsy. I can look up her shop name for you... 3d
  •   mollysmaison @lazydesigner etsy store is called FrenchModeVintique . She has a couple on there that are quite pricey but I'm sure others will pop up x 3d
  •   lazydesigner Thank you Sarah!! I'll give it a look! 3d
  •   albertandgrace What a treasure Sarah! 2d

mollysmaison More work in progress. Thank you for all your feedback yesterday, I feel more confident now. I was close to throwing in the towel but feel like I'm getting somewhere which is great. Above is the lace bodice onto which I'm adding a couple of peplums and of course tulle!! #adornbysarahb 2w
  •   mollysmaison Everyone please note 3 pairs of scissors - one for paper and one just for fabric. I'm a good seamstress!! 2w
  •   lilyandpoppy Love lace and tulle! Should be gorgeous! 2w
  •   mollysmaison @lilyandpoppy it's a good combo. I hope it works out. You guys will be the first to know! 2w
  •   seasoulstudio The anticipation is almost unbearable!! 1w
  •   mollysmaison @seasoulstudio I know! I almost feel like this is part yours :) 1w
  •   seasoulstudio Oh don't! I can only dream about being such an ethereal, fae-like creature that would do justice to one of your dresses Glad to hear the creativity is flowing xx 1w
  •   debbyslater You are so talented. I can't even sew a hem properly! 1w

mollysmaison Opinions sought! Too poofy? Too simple? Basically this tulle was going to be a skirt but I think it was too much. So I wrapped it around Pricilla and tied some gold lace that was sent to me last week accidentally (I had ordered some thing else). I was thinking I'd make a boned bodice to hold the bust area in tighter but not sure about the transparency of the skirt. Is it a nice balance to go with the heavily lacey pieces in the mini collection? Aarrrrgghhh! Thoughts? #adornbysarahb 2w
  •   racwell I really like the idea of a boned bodice...will look great (I actually made one about 20 years ago!!!) 2w
  •   racwell Different topic - do you have anything that "represents Australia"? You could enter the competition for a national costume for Miss Universe (I think???) 2w
  •   mollysmaison @racwell yes I remember that dress, you did well making it. I'd quite like to make a miss universe dress but don't think I have time at the mo x 2w
  •   mollysmaison @melfordcottagegarden oh Danielle don't give me more ideas!! Yes, it is quite Degas :) 2w
  •   iamjanmurphy Gorgeous as usual Sarah x 2w

mollysmaison I was just tagged by my lovely friend Amanda for a #keepingitreallyreallyreal pic. I'm sitting in my "thinking chair" in my studio surveying the mess and picking glue off my fingers. I love this room but it's currently like a bomb site - bags of finished scarves for the upcoming market, bags of fabric, paper patterns, half made dresses that i have only a few weeks in which to finish. I'd vacuum it but it's just too difficult! I'd like to tag @kerrymphotography :) 2w
  •   homelyoneamanda It's a productive, creative mess Sarah... I'm not sure how creative any of us would be among order and tidiness... all the bits and pieces you're pulling out and working on are providing you with all that inspiration for your amazing pieces! xx 2w
  •   melfordcottagegarden @mollysmaison It looks like a creative space. I wouldn't call it messy. There's a lot of things in there but I would expect that for a designer/artists studio. As long as the room makes you feel comfortable, then stuff it! Ever seen pictures of Margaret Olley's home/studio? Stuff everywhere and an absolutely fascinating space. To be honest, if a designer/artists studio was tidy and spartan, I'd wonder how much work they actually did in there! 2w
  •   mollysmaison @melfordcottagegarden oh yes, Margaret Olley's studio is amazing! I love being in spaces like that as there's so much to see! I agree if a creative space is super neat then I doubt much creativity is happening :) 2w
  •   mollysmaison @homelyoneamanda thanks Amanda, yes it is a productive space, though it would be good if we had a door on the room so I could close it and walk away. One day xx 2w
  •   iamjanmurphy A delightful and productive mess 2w
  •   debbyslater It looks like a fab space! 1w
  •   koeanui Perfect room! If you want to see my Tahitian life, you know what to do 1w
  •   smallacornsamanda Looks fantastically creative and so inspiring :) 1w

mollysmaison Might be time to throw these out? If I'm being honest it feels like a bit of a self portrait. TGIF x 2w
  •   janeplanetjoy I was wide awake between 1-3 am Sar @mollysmaison so know where you're coming from 2w
  •   cypressfoss Oh! Still no better? I'm sorry I haven't got back to you properly.. Only I think it's cosmic Sarah.. Apart from a lovely Wednesday punctuating the whole thing, I'm in a week from hell. So stressed out I can't tell you. This week has made the week we moved house seem relaxing & fun! Too too boring & there will be an end to it soon, and I will find time to send you a proper message on FB. Hang in there, & try to cultivate *inner peace* if you can xo 2w
  •   theoldfathen I like these 2w

mollysmaison Speaks for itself #darkmofo Massive long lines so we went to The Standard for burgers and fries and then back home to jump in bed and watch tv. Cosy now :) 3w
  •   cypressfoss What a good idea. 3w
  •   malukagirl It was packed to the rafters tonight Sarah. We were out of there by but after eight. So many people were trying to get in without tix. 3w
  •   malukagirl *a bit 3w
  •   mollysmaison @malukagirl yes I was amazed at the long lines. I had already planned on my burger takeaway so I wasn't bothered but it would have been cold to have stood there for a long while. It was a nice night though :) 3w
  •   annetics_ Love this photo Sarah @mollysmaison 3w
  •   loves_laughs The Standard is mighty fine however, I did the same yesterday except I went to Daci & Daci 3w
  •   mollysmaison @loves_laughs I was actually admiring the cakes through the window at Daci and Daci as we walked up to the Standard! Beautiful creations :) 3w
  •   loves_laughs Those cakes look incredible and not too badly priced either mmm yummo 3w
