Whip it up!

OK, we need a little music for this post - but Blogger will not let me do it without giving up my only son! So imagine Devo singing 'Whip It'... along with a new dress modeled by Emile.

Seems like everyone is 'whipping up' something - a skirt, a top, a dress, a coat...

And I don't whip up anything!

Yes, at times this has gotten to me. Green-eyed monster lurking. I have spent days on a blouse and my mind has churned over someone's Banksia blouse, Darling Ranges dress, Minoru jacket...whipped up on Sunday afternoon. That would have taken me lots more time - I'm so slow!

I spend a week on a dress, several days on a blouse, a couple days on a pair of pants. I admit I stop a lot - go for that coffee, watch the tube, water the plants, get the mail, fool around. But still - no way can I whip it up that way!

Pause. Picture time.

I'm working on a project that I whipped up today (except the hem is not done and won't be done until tomorrow - thereby defeating my whipping claim :-)

But very cute. Emile shows it above, a lovely knit maxi dress. More tomorrow, promise. Kind of. Meanwhile, received in the mail....

Love it! Coco


  1. Oh summery! And I bet it's perfection inside too - that takes time.

  2. really cute dress - still qualifies as a whip-up

  3. That's the perfect whip it up project! And it's sunshiny and fun!

  4. Whip it, whip it good! I was thinking of that song earlier this evening.

    I like the happy colors!

  5. I'm a slow sewer too, both because of limited time and because that's just the way I am! The daylight savings time joke cracked me up!

  6. Yes that sure is a very cute dress! That pattern is perfect...it allows the beauty of the fabric to shine.

  7. That's a pretty little sunshiny dress and perfect for lounging about a pool, sipping an adult drink which of course, has an umbrella in it!

  8. Lovely dress! What a ray of sunshine xx

  9. I very rarely "whip up" anything. Even when I'm doing something extremely simple, when it's almost finished I always think, "I could finish this today but I don't have to," and take a break. Sometimes the break lasts several days but this year I've been trying to keep it down to just one.


I love it that you came by...and thank you for your comments! Coco
