Studio Sunday: So Much To Do, So Little Time.

Posted on: Monday, 9 July 2012

This week we are properly rushing to get everything finished in time for the Videopia festival tour. We head off to Suffolk to Latitude festival on Thursday & as always we seem to be cutting it pretty fine.
I've made a start on the girls uniforms in some left over red & white spotty fabric I had from a NYE dress. It looks a little weird in the photo, I haven't finished shaping the bodice & I have a feeling I'm gona end starting again as I think they would look great in all polka dot.
(I have a new adjustable tailors dummy - I love it)

Whilst I've been sewing, Rob has been real busy pap maching his socks off. These are the beginnings of what will be some fearsome dinos from Jurassic Park!

This weekend we have been drinking a lot of casual rum & watching a lot of Tour de France.
Now I must dash - I have a lot of faux fur onsies to make before the night is out.

Is anyone planning to go to any festivals this summer?
I really missed the lack of Glastonbury (it's the first year I've not been since I was 9, booo), but, there are so many amazing festivals going on these days it really is quite exciting.

    1. Won't actually be selling at Latitude but will be there making mini movie remakes in a big white & red stripey horsebox. You should come & check it out!

    I wish I could have gone to peace&love festival in Sweden again, but University exams crossed my plans :(

  8. There was no Glastonbury in 2006 or 2001 either - they take a planned break every 5 years or so...

  9. Hey Isabel, I just found your blog while reading Katie's blog Skunkboy. I really like your blog and now I follow you :)
    Did you study fashion design or do you learned sewing from anywhere else?
    I want to design clothes, too. And I already sew my own stuff like clothes, bags, etc. Bisous, Luu

    1. Hey Luu,
      I didn't study fashion design anywhere just been teaching myself since I was little. I was in love with Vivienne Westwood since I was about 11.
      Great that you are making your own stuff - it's such fun, keep it up!

  10. I too am missing Glastonbury this year as well :( I haven't even made it to any other festivals either though, which is unlike me! Just discovered you via Katie's blog, but I love when I discover new UK based blogs :)

    1. I know! Although with all this rain I'm sure it would have been an absolute mud bath (more than usual). Lovely to have a UK reader :)
