a dress a day

Tuesday's dress

Day Dresses: a collection of 7 simple 60s style shift dresses, one for each day of the week. All handmade with lined bodices, gathered waist (perfect for an underskirt) and a hidden zip. Wear with bare legs and with sandy feet on the beach. More days of the week coming soon. Available in pre-made sizes or made to measure.

new studio

my new studio at St Lawrence Textile Centre. everyday i get up and roll down the hill, sew to my hearts content in an incredible church filled with knitwear, old buttons, sewing machines, wool, old vogues... and then nip next door to the bicycle shop (beautiful new bar/cafe/oddity) for oat crepes with brie and bacon, bubble and squeak with poached egg and halloumi or just to use their amazing toilets that are gilded gold with chandeliers. it feels like a fairytale.

july inspiration

i want to make stacks of scrapbooks and sketchbooks like this and have them piling up round my rickety house

and fill my greenhouses with tulle and lanterns, to lay under patchwork blankets and read piles of literature as the light fades
