making a dress for me

               PART I Well, it’s actually for my dear friend. But I’m drafting the pattern on the mannequin I’ve got to hand, yours truly.   I always meant to make pieces for mothers as well as their daughters. But ‘pure mummy’ languished on the sidebar of the website and [...]

the perfect little dress

Livie designed her first dress! It's my Christmas present to her. She gets any dress she wants from me, but since I've designed them all, I realised she didn't have half as much say in what she wears as I thought. So this year my gift to her (along with the dozen ubiquitous ponies) is [...]

a pinch of inspiration

Whoever said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery has never been copied. Imagination is a glorious thing. All of us are born with a head full of rich dreams. Some of us let bits go along the way, or have the “nonsense” drummed out of us. Some of us cling to it like [...]
