Weather's a little choppy

Today was a classic 4 seasons in one day in typical Melbourne style. In the 2 mins of sunshine Minnie May posed for a picture with a new chopstick design. Summer is the inspiration for this little collection of designs (now in store). Just need the weather to co-operate!

New Designs - Lunch in Daylesford

I have had a creative burst using fabrics I sourced when I last visited Thea's studio (with more to come). Just added to the store is her beautiful Marguerite design in 2 colourways new to Lyssy May. The designs remind me of a leisurely day in in store.

Little Miss Picnic

I do love working with Italian fabrics and this super pretty waffle pique I found in the Garment District in NYC was destined for a Little Miss design the moment I spied it on the shelves. Available now in the shopfront.

Keep it Simple

In keeping with an overall strategy to simplify my everyday life I've 're-jigged' the Lyssy May website. Admittedly its not as pretty as it has been in recent iterations however it will hopefully be just as inviting!

The big change that I am experimenting with is a big cartel store. This is part of a move to put more 'one only' designs on the site and this shopping cart option makes it easier for stock management. Plus the big cartel app allows the store to be integrated with facebook so hopefully it makes it easier for shoppers to see what's new and purchase all in the one place.

I hope to build up the number of products listed over the coming weeks so there will be lots to browse by the time Christmas shopping rolls around.

Anyway, that's been my Sunday's worth of work - I hope you've all had lovely weekends!
