Pop Up number 2

By now you are probably sick of all your summer clothes and there is still at least another 2 months of hot weather in Brisbane. I have been busy sewing some cool summer things for my second Pop Up. It will be in the same location as last time…Sarva, at 239 Boundary St, West End.

Pop Up 5th February

I have a bigger range of sizes this time and some skirts, shorts and narrow pants as well as tops and dresses. Everything is either cotton or linen. The linen is easy care and no ironing (unless you really want to).

I also have some soft cases for your glasses and if I have enough time there will be some cushions in fabrics I have collected from all over the world.

Pop Up 5th February

The Pop Up begins on Friday 5th February until 13th February. It will be open from 9.30 am until 3.00 pm every day.

Drop in to say hello…and please tell your friends.


  1. Glorious Deb! Good luck with the pop up!!

    • Thank you. I am hoping it will be busy.

  2. Good luck, Deb! That top in yellow, purple, white and blue is really lovely. Very chic!

    • Thank you. I have been very busy with my sewing for the last few weeks.

  3. Everything looks beautiful Debra – you certainly have been busy!

    • I have enjoyed being back at the Bernina. I like to keep busy

  4. I’d like a XL ( men’s ) in the orange top / “toute la files” style please —as in shirt / pants long leg 😜🏍

    • You will look wonderful.

  5. Hi Debra, I ama cousin of Suzie Gooch in Brisbane and I saw your designs through her FB page and love your stuff! I live in Northern Ireland – is it feasible to get your stuff here somehow? Many thanks, Sally

    • It is possible, but I fear the postage may be quite expensive.

  6. Looking good Deb. You have been hard at work. Very pretty garments.

    • Thank you, despite my Bernina blow out, things have gone well.

  7. Hope you have a great pop up….everything looks georgous.

    • Thank you. I am looking forward to some busy days.

  8. Wonderful. How many sizes do you make of each design?

    • I have a couple of sizes in each design. I don’t make many of each, I get a bit bored doing the same things over and over again.

  9. I love those sleeveless dresses! It makes me long for summer here in Italy so I could try one.
    Good luck, I hope you have more customers than you know what to do with!

    • Summer will arrive before you know it. See you soon.

  10. Good job! Those are amazing. I know I sounded like a girl, but the idea of you doing something it seems you enjoy and turn into profit is just incredible. Good luck, Debra. I’ll be sharing this on Facebook.

    • Thanks Romel. I like to sew. It is just a hobby now, but it is what I did for a living for a long time.

  11. Lovely fabrics Debra and nice designs too. You’ve been very busy!

    • I have been busy, but I like to sew.

  12. Wonderful!!!! If I could I would pop up to see you on the 5th! I love the white dress with the gathered neck and strip straps. The collection has a Scandi edge too I think. Hope it goes brilliantly Deb. Brava!!!!

    • Thanks Janine. I hope it is busy too. I would like to do 2 a year.

  13. I wish I could just pop on over and buy a few shirts from you-love your work!
