Creative Idea

The pink skirt to match my 'Chanel Inspired Jacket' is completed and I used two remnants sitting in my basket - see image below.

I used the pink Tweed for the main part of the skirt and a remnant of black Swiss Broderie Anglaise for the hip piece. A skin coloured linng brings out the pattern of the embroidery. Now I have my perfect suit to treasure for years to come....

Be inspired!

Happy New New to all my readers

Christmas Dress

After many teething problems and small headaches my Christmas Dress is completed; can't wait to wear it! If you wish to make one for yourself for next Christmas, let me know. I run regular sewing classes.....

I designed and made this jacket 2 years ago. Just noticed that Chanel used the same fabric in their latest range; now I'll treasure my garment forever!! I do have a short piece left for a skirt. Stay tuned for more creative ideas....

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my visitors!
