Welcome to Ubu Lala

Welcome to Ubu Lala's new blog !

My name is Andrea and I'm a Perth born, Melbourne based designer. I specialise in lingerie, swimwear, wallets, machine stitched brooches, swing dresses, 50's style high waisted circular skirts and reversible wrap dresses and tops.

I started machine sewing, embroidery, knitting and crochet from around the age of six and haven't stopped since !! My mum and grondmothers have guided me along the way and definately taught me to be patient. I discovered in high school that I have a true passion for machine embroidery, in which I apply to and mix with many different mediums.

The typical Ubu Lala style is bright and often cute, with some more mature and formal styles and colour ways also thrown into the mix. I currently stock my work at The Olive Grove Studios on Sydney Rd in Brunswick.

So I hope you enjoy my pics !!
