Funky Little Waistcoat

Tailored but slouchy, this waistcoat is taking shape. Should be finished by tomorrow, along with the jeans I have just dyed. 2 Garments down, 7 to go !!

After the final crit on May 12th I will find out if my collection is going to be in the show and for sale in Beales. Below: Dress toile, now on it's way in silk cotton

Another Textiles Collaboration

Today I worked with Charlotte from Textiles to help her create a dress for her final project. 
Charlotte had printed some space inspired fabric and as for the shape, our inspiration was this amazing dress from all saints.

Here's what we came up with. It flows on the bias of the fabric, with a boned corset style under-structure and raw edges. Charlotte is now going to bead it and next week we will do a photoshoot for it.

The pictures just don't do it justice!
