Starting with some imported goodness

Can't think of a better way to start off my new blog. These came in the mail today, express from Asia. I had to sign for them so when I got out of the shower and saw Annie, my mail carrier, leaving my house with my fabric I considered chasing her down the street in my towel! Thankfully I dress fast and it didn't come to that. Being addicted to fabric (especially crazy hard to find, imported fabric) can make you do crazy things!

Beautiful Stack of Imports

From top to bottom:
Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa Japan Pink Buttons
Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa Japan Pink Vintage Sewing Scissors
Kei Fabrics Japan Kerchief Girls Black
Kei Fabrics Japan Kerchief Girls Green
Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa Japan Multi Buttons

What should I make? Check back soon for a post filled with photos and instructions on how to make this step-into, one-piece, peasant romper I made for Annie. I've had this idea in my head for weeks and I made it work!



  1. I love the description of your blog on your header!!
    Congrats on starting and lots of luck!

  2. Woohoo!!! Congratulations and welcome to the world of blogging Kori! I love this little romper on your darling girl.

  3. I added you to my reader. Good luck Kori!

  4. Welcome to the blogosphere!! I am now your loyal and faithful follower. Stop by my blog and say hi too!!

  5. Ooooh, I just went to check your profile (to get to your Etsy store, although I'm sure I didn't have to do that) and found you had started a blog! Thanks so much for offering up some of your Koseki finds -- I was so jealous to see that you had scored them (you, with your mad skillz finding HR fabrics abroad!), so it just made my day to get an FQ. (You know, just a helpful nudge to perhaps keep sharing whatever you find in your always-successful quests:))

    Love the rompers you've been making, BTW!

  6. Love the pink scissors. I don't think I've seen that colourway in person or photographed yet.

  7. Annie"s a very cute model, and the peasant romper is adorable as well :)
