a long day!

Wow what a day - between cutting skirts, organising fabrics & colours & then ofcourse getting 3 boys to all their different activities, whilst dragging a little princess around, I feel like today has been a very long day!

I now have to sit down tonight & focus on our website & this blog too.

Things are getting exciting now & we're doing last minute organisation for Mosman Markets on the 5th & the website launch.

I now have to work out how to get followers for my blog & twitter page!! There are so many great site to check out when you join twitter. I'm feeling very new to all this. And it's taking up lots of time - but it's fun.

Anyway, bye for now,

flounce about... dress ups for everyday — our blog

Welcome to our first blog. What a crazy few weeks it has been - so busy.

We are in the process of getting our website finished and it should be up and running in the next day or so hopefully.
We have so many ideas for products that we are trying to start with a couple of styles in lots of colour choices, cause we all know how fussy and particular little girls can be with their clothes!! However, we will of course be adding to our styles in the future.

We will be at Mosman Markets in Sydney on September 5th, hopefully you'll pop in and visit us.

So, where did our "flounce" come from? It came from our daughters Ruby & Audrey. Ruby is approaching her 1st Birthday & Audrey's 2nd Birthday is coming up. We were on the lookout for a pettiskirt with a difference. When we couldn't find exactly what we were looking for we decided to make/design our own. And so the "flounce" was born.

As you will see, our flounces are unique and quite different to anything else on the market.They are not pettiskirts, although we do have some of those, they are not tutus, although maybe they'll be added at some stage, they are flounces. And you'll need to check out our website to see why they are so special!

As you will come to discover from our blog, Cassandra & I (Kate) are very different. Cassandra is very creative & clever at designing and actually making up our ideas. I on the other hand have millions of ideas, but need Cassandra to create them! Cassandra has a background in Design & I have a Retail background. So together we work really well.

We both have 4 children each. Cassandra has 2 girls & 2 boys. I have 3 boys and then our little princess. So we're busy, but we're loving what we are doing. And we hope you do too.

Please look out for our website in the next few days and let us know what you think

Bye for now,
