Pips Desplat  🌸Pips. Feminist. Sewcialist. Warrior. Princess.🌸

Ending my epic 8 week holiday with a new self drafted skirt in linen from @potter_and_co_australia I had THE most amazing time thanks to my family, my Boo and Elle @sewpositivity Thank you for joining me on my travels.

I also finished this super cute Hadely top by @grainlinestudio I honestly thought we were going into man repellent territory with this one, but after adding some shaping on the side seams it hasn’t elicited any feedback which can only be taken as a good sign 😉. Liberty fabric purchased from the mothership @libertylondon during #booinberlin #thegirlinateacup #hadelytop #graunlinestudio #libertyfabric #libertylove #libertyaddict

Nothing says “birthday week” like new pyjamas for B1 & B2. They chose their own fabric this year from @fibresmith so they will be nice and cosy in flannel on our 30 degrees summer nights 😂😂😂. Bruce is so impressed he wants his own pair in man size. One of a Kind labels by @kylieandthemachine #thegirlinateacup #selflesssewing #pjs #oliverands #memade #madewithlove #madebyhands #sewcialist

I think I missed posting this outfit when I was in Paris (darlings!). Three pleat skirt by @theassemblylineshop with cropped scout tee @grainlinestudio in sashiko fabric from @thedrapery Also my Liberty water bottle that saw me through Europe from @kiitoslivingbydesign Keeping the memories alive! #thegirlinateacup #threepleatskirt #scouttee #sewcialist #handmadewardrobe #booinberlin

I’ve already plans for @melbournefrocktails dress, so am wondering if this would be too much for the @sew_melbourne garden party next year..... @deer_and_doe_patterns this is just beautiful! #thegirlinateacup #dressups #theresnosuchthingasoverdressed #sewcialist

When fabric was ordered when you were in Berlin, surely that sits in the Berlin budget, not the everyday fabric purchasing budget 🙈. This @potter_and_co_australia linen is perfection and destined to become a swishy summery skirt. #thegirlinateacup #linen #sewcialist #memadeeveryday #whatisbudget

School holiday vibes. I realised yesterday that I go back to work next week. I thought I had another week to go 🙈. So making the most of the quiet time this morning with my #booinberlin stash. Cardamom coffee is keeping my spirits up. Happy Tuesday all! #thegirlinateacup #libertyfabric #libertylove #sewcialist #sewcialists #hadleytop

Reality bites. Feeling those little feels from excessive post croissant consumption. I sized up for this Granville but the squish is padding the fit out a little more than I’d like. Hopefully returning to a more plant based eating routine will make wearing this more comfy. It’s such a beautiful Liberty print. #thegirlinateacup #thegirlinabathtub #granvilleshirt #sewaholic #libertyfabric #iatemyweightincroissants 🙈#noregrets

My second finished piece from my recent trip with Liberty of a London fabric purchased from @guthrieghani in Birmingham, cut out in Berlin and stitched at home. A global @sewaholic Granville shirt to add to my collection. Hopefully will get a pic with it on this week when I’ve dealt with my swamp hair.... Honestly, you’d think I’d been playing in the bottom of a river bed all week. No mermaid hair here! #thegirlinateacup #magdalenesmuse #granvilleshirt #sewaholic #libertyoflondon #libertyfabric #libertyaddict

Each new goal deserves a special writing book. Pages to map out the pathway needed in order to reach out for an experience that I’ve dreamt of for years. Now that I’ve literally conquered the world, it’s time to focus on my sewing and see where that can take me. I would be overjoyed to learn the intricacies of Art Deco and Art Nouveau style in a modern day aesthetic. If anyone knows of any good texts or tutorials on beading I’d love to hear your recommendations. This will likely take several months to put together a specially crafted portfolio. Wish me luck! #thegirlinateacup #artdeco #melbournefashion #melbournefashiondesign #lovetosew #internship #artdeco #artnouveau #vintagestyle

Arrived home safe and sound after 30 hours of sleep deprivation. Looking forward to sleeping in and playing with new fabrics tomorrow. Best. Holiday. Ever. And likely never to be repeated. #booinberlin

And one last meal in Berlin. @sewpositivity unfortunately there was a medical emergency that required gin. I’ll send some more over from Australia I promise xxx #booinberlin #cakebreak
