Autumn Leaves

Posted on: Thursday, 30 October 2014


Am I always apologising for being two steps behind? It feels like I am and it has for most of my life. This collection wasn't really meant to happen, but I was inspired quite late in the day and I just have to go with it. Hopefully it'll be released next week, along with a new website.

Autumn this year has taken a long time to arrive. Now the clocks have changed I'm feeling dozy and dreamlike in the days with the clouds hanging low in the hills outside the window. The evenings are perfect for hibernating in my studio with the heater on and the radio telling me stories whilst I sew (or watching telly in front of the fire or going to the pub).

I like the dreamy, sparkly but slightly eerie vibe of this Lazy Oaf Winter lookbook.

Barbara Hepworth

Feeling inspired by Babs and her beautiful studio in Cornwall. St Ives is such a magical place to be an artist, even if it's a little touristy at times and the seagulls there are pure evil.

Better Dressmaking

A few months back I bought this beautiful book 'Better Dressmaking' by Ruth Wyeth Spears. I'm in love with all the fonts and pictures and the tips are pretty useful too. Just look at that wiggly line on the first page. Phoorraaww.

Bridesmaids In Blue

I made these lovely ladies bridesmaids dresses for a wedding back in May. This summer I've had a lots of interest in bridesmaids dresses and it's been such a pleasure chatting to brides about what they want and sourcing fabric etc. If you are looking for something special for your special day then do get in touch!
