‘Bib Skirt’: BurdaStyle 10/2020 #118

Bib skirt. Burda. Really? What were you thinking? You have to hope it sounds better in German. Brooklyn Farm, at which some of this pinafore was sewn, provided the most wonderful backdrop for these photos. It’s allowed to look great – it was a movie set. Of course once the pinafore was made it neededContinue reading “‘Bib Skirt’: BurdaStyle 10/2020 #118”

Liberty lawn robe: BurdaStyle 01/2012 #134

I’ve made myself a summer robe with Liberty lawn and I love it. It seems indulgent to use such delightful fabric for clothing I don’t wear in public but I do wear it most days a week, even if only briefly I have a large stash of lovely fabric this is not my only pieceContinue reading “Liberty lawn robe: BurdaStyle 01/2012 #134”

In London with Felicity

Warning. Another image heavy post with only a small amount of sewing content. PSA over. Still with me? Okay, lets start. Felicity and I continued to pack a lot in to our remaining 5 days away. World’s best tourists? Most walking between the sights as possible? Most use of bandaids on feet? All of theContinue reading “In London with Felicity”

Liberty and London

Yes of course I did. Visited Liberty of London, that is. Doesn’t everyone do that when they are in London on a 25th wedding anniversary weekend? We went to the V&A museum too. They have a great fashion exhibition. Lots and lots of other art and design too. The coffee cups in the outdoor cafe:Continue reading “Liberty and London”
