Here are another two T-Shirts..very different from any other colours and textures i normally use but still fun.
T-Shirt itself is made from good quality black jersey fabric and made from a size 8-10 tee pattern. They are both hand dyed (bleached) and one has got a dyed pattern all over, the other has only got the pattern on the shoulders plus a hand dyed black silk flower.
They're both for sale so email if you want one :)
Hand dyed Tees as seen : £25

I love draped skirts (and dresses) and been wanting to make a skirt for ages but i think the overwhelming thought of it has held me back.
I have gathered some images for inspiration and i have a 50s floral fabric i'd like to use so as soon as i can have some alone-time, i will start draping and pinning on Mathilda (my mannequin).. We'll see how it goes :)

Bitten by the summer bug...
Ok ok, the majority of our summer days are rainy but that doesn't mean you can't surround yourself with summer things to brighten up your day..
These gorgeous handmade cushions will definately cheer up a gloomy mood :)
They come in two sizes:
40 x 40 cms
35 x 45 cms
and have 100% down filling, plain backside, wool tapestry flowers and zip.
(or £30 without cushion.)
I only have four (two in each size) so email me fast if you would like one (or two, or three...)
Great as presents or just a summer treat for yourself.
Payments via Paypal or Etsy as usual :)

Nah, forget it..i tried bringing a little bit of 'light' in to my rainy day but didn't feel inspired..i have to leave that top for another (sunny) day.
So, i went in to 50s mood instead and this is what i came up with. This is my desperate housewives dotted apron-summmer dress with pockets..

I have had this beautiful pale lemon chiffon fabric lying around forever and had completely forgotton about it, untill i had a huge clearout last week.
Im going through a yellow phase at the moment. Not sure if it's the lack of sunshine but i feel my days need brightening up and finding this 'Sunshine' fabric definately did.
Now i need to make a top out of it..I shall make it my mission for this evening!
I'll add pictures of the result as soon as finished :)
Most of you now knows that i have had the honour of being picked for the design and making of the wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses for a Tuscan bride and it is really the most exciting project i have been working on.
We still have another year before the big day but with all planning,sketching and sourcing and last but not least, all fittings, the day they will tie the knot will be here in no time.
So, with the design of the wedding dress decided and the fabrics ordered, we can now start on the bridesmaids dresses.
I will go tulle hunting this week and hopefully we'll have that sorted as well :)
But first..i will enjoy my Mocha Frappucchino :)
