i n s p i r e d : Meg Ryan

Tuesday, 28 May 2013

I'm not exactly a massive rom-com kind of person, but 'When Harry Met Sally' is such a classic. I watched it the other day and I fell in love with Meg Ryan's style. So 80s/90s I just can't help myself. Here are some screen shots of her looking pretty rad.

Those glasses in the top pic are my faaaav / Babytalk! That pink dress with the scalloped neck line, lovely lovely / I like her hair and those high waisted jeans, also the desk is so good. My hair is prone to some spontaneous wild 80s dos as it has 'a lot of home hair cuts' (hairdressers words) in it, so I gotta take some inspiration from her mop top.

Pale Blue & Peachy Flowers

Friday, 24 May 2013

A few weeks ago I made one of my Macaroon dresses from some vintage Liberty fabric I have been hoarding for over a year. I love this fabric so much, and the dress is simply my favourite. I love making up custom dresses for people that end up so special and one of a kind.

It was difficult for me to part with this pretty thing.

I hope everyone has a lovely long weekend. I'm planning on doing a lot of sewing and then perhaps some prancing around in the blue bells. What about you?

Picnic Weather

We've been having some perfect Spring time weather and beautiful sunny afternoons lately. I spent bank holiday Monday in London as my sister had a picnic for her birthday. I love living in the countryside but there's something pretty magical about London come summer. The trees are all in blossom, there's warmth in the air and everyone seems to be cycling about or lounging on patches of grass.

Spring time that feels like summer is my favourite. I like May because it has two bank holidays and it feels all full of optimistic plans for the warmer months.

This Is Nice

I've stumbled across the work of Danielle Kroll and I think it is really very nice. This picture in particular is lovely stuff. More lovely stuff can be seen here. I'd like to be able to paint like this so I'm going to practice.

Selfish Sewing

Wednesday, 1 May 2013

I do a lot of sewing, obviously, but I actually rarely make something for myself. So, inspired by 'Me-Made-May', The Great British Sewing Bee, and lovely Tilly, I'm feeling the need to sew more selfish things and to ruddy wear them too. My friend Beci just gave me a bunch of old sewing patterns that came out of her aunts attic. There are some proper 70s/80s corkers in there.

Also, the light is so nice in my studio in the evening I have no excuse not to sit and sew in the sun. Is anyone else feeling inspired by this lovely springtime weather?
