Abigail


Abigail is a midi length yellow skirt with box pleats at the front and a flattering slight dropped hem at the back. Abigail has a zip fastening and beautiful fabric covered buttons. In a former life Abigail was a Laura Ashley bridesmaid dress made from the softest buttery fabric. I took apart the dress and re worked it to make this design. There were simply acres of fabric in this dress so if you like this material look out for more bits coming soon :)

Happy New Year 2015!


I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year! I'm back from my travels and ready to make some new designs. I received a very thoughtful Christmas present of some Business cards from my sister designed by her friend Emily. I think this might save me hours of hand stamping old bits of recycled cardboard!

I have sourced some lovely fairtrade organic cotton for new designs but my first priority is to use up my pretty vintage fabric stash so that is what I am busy with right now.
