I finally got my Spain pictures developed and am now wishing it was sun beating down outside rather than fog. I thought I was ready for Autumn but perhaps I'm not.

Did anyone else go anywhere nice on their hols this year?

I'm having a mega clear out over in the shop. These ready made garments are cluttering up my studio and my brain. So go and grab yourself a ruddy bargain. And tell your friends too! Cheers me dears.

Studio Sunday : New Space

Sunday, 15 September 2013

Some corners of my new studio. It still needs some work, but I couldn't help moving in already. I loved my old space but when making clothes you need some room to spread out when cutting and pressing and now I have a nice area of floor space where I can sit in front of my blow heater and work away all winter.

Groove Is In My Heart

Friday, 13 September 2013

I've become a bit obsessed with working this week and I'm enjoying it oh so much. I decorated my new studio on Monday and since then I have felt so inspired in the space. Lots to share next week indeed! But for now, it's Friday night and I will have a bath and sit in front of the fire watching shit on the telly. I'll leave you with this, stay groovy.

Fabric Dyeing With Flowers

Wednesday, 4 September 2013

It's been a while since I experimented with natural dyeing techniques. After playing around last year I put it down to something I wanted to do but didn't have time to learn about. I saw Nancy's beautiful post about using flowers to dye fabric months back and I finally decided to give it a go. If you want to try it at home this is a great step by step guide.

I'm really pleased with the results. It looks all romantic, doesn't it? I'm not sure if the colour would hold up against washing so it might not be the best for clothing. I'm learning more and more about natural dyes and printing my own fabric and am so excited to be using some of it in the collection I'm working on.

Shine On

Monday, 2 September 2013

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Some sunny yellow goodies I like on Etsy, to match this late summer sunshine we're having.

I've just got back from working at End of the Road festival with Videopia which was a wonderful way to end the summer. Things have been crazily hectic these last few months and they don't look like they are going to be slowing down soon. Shine on eehhhh.
