White silk coat with hot pink and yellow dots and zigzags

White silk coat with hot pink and yellow dots and zigzags by AbfabDesigns.comThis little white silk coat is light as a feather and rolls up as small as a banana, so it’s perfect to put in your suitcase or handbag.

The neck line is finished with white silk binding, and it’s very easy to slip on over a dress, tank top, chemise or blouse.

Helen’s wearing white pants and a white top with 3/4 length sleeves which would be great for spring, summer and even early autumn. Worn over winter colours this top can be great all year round!

Silk chiffon is open-weave, which means that it lets air flow through the fibres/fibers — perfect for warm to hot weather, resort wear, cruise wear – wherever your fancy takes you :-)

What do you think about this white silk coat? Do you like these simple designs with two colours? I’d love to hear from you.

Ciao for now,

PS – I just saw some cute shoes which would look great with this silk coat!

Shoes with high heels in turquoise, orange, yellow, hot pink, purple

Launching my new website

Finally launching my new website!

After all the great work my Virtual Assistant did, I’ve been flat out launching a different website and am now getting back to AbfabDesigns.com.

Yes! It’s time!

There’s still a lot to be done, adding new photos, new hand-painted silk and other items, updating the new blog on a regular basis, but I thought I should give it all a kick start TODAY and then I’ll be able to start on Phase 2 :-)

Let me know what you think of my new website!

Moving the AbfabDesigns website

What a week! I’ve been moving the AbfabDesigns website into new website software (WordPress.org) and I am soooo happy!

This has been on my To Do List for months now, and I finally hired a Virtual Assistant who’s been an absolute gem and helped me get the site data transferred – woohoo!

Stay tuned for a cool new “look” very soon :-)

Ciao ciao,

AbfabDesigns New Mannequin

AbfabDesigns New Mannequin!

AbfabDesigns New Mannequin wearing handpainted silk by Teena HughesI am so excited to let you know of the arrival of AbfabDesigns new mannequin!

I picked her up yesterday and as soon as we got home I had to put one of my handpainted silk tops on (with some added bling) – she looks gorgeous and has a certain air of “je ne sais quoi” (“I’m not sure what”) about her.

I have yet to choose a name (feel free to send in suggestions!)

Here’s the first photo I’ve taken of her – she will feature on my new website and I can’t wait to take more photos! Woohoo! This is a day to remember!!

So please welcome my first AbfabDesigns Mannequin!

In this photo she’s wearing one of my textile designs on handpainted silk twill in turquoise blue, lime green, purple and white.
