My outfits are finally done! This is what they looked like on the catwalk!

Tweet Ok finallay, after a whole school year of sewing a couple of days ago it was time for the end of year show and catwalk. I’ve already mentioned this coming up, and it was a very stressful week leading up to it, we had a different project (costumes for a big opera that we had been asked to make!) that needed to be completed in very short time. So it was a very full on week with long days. And then there was the catwalk!    We all had the choice between being part of the catwalk or have … Continue reading

Shirt, Breeches and a Waistcoat I am very proud of

Tweet To continue posting some of the stuff I have made for school. I have yet to show you any of the men’s things I have been sewing. This year of our course we are working on making two complete outfits, one man’s and one woman’s, so our time has been equally split between the two. Of course since we are making men’s clothes, and everyone in my class is female, we have to have a model to make them for. I am fortunate enough to not only have someone who is willing to put up with modelling for me … Continue reading

You gotta love silk roses!

Tweet Last week at school we had a couple of days where we all got the chance to try out some different/new things. We had some subjects to choose from and one of them was making flowers out of fabric and making fascinators. I have long wanted to give millinery a go, and I have to say that after that day of trying it out I was seriously wondering if I hadn’t picked the wrong course! It was just sooo much fun!!! I was able to make some gorgeous silk roses and attached them to a little hat piece that … Continue reading

The Unmentionables

Tweet Hello! I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday! I’m having a relaxed morning at home, got up and made some scones when I woke up (they turned out so so) and ate them in bed with a cup of English Breakfast tea and a light and easy to read chick-lit.  I’m alone home for the weekend so might go out and meet up with a friend this afternoon.m This week at school has been busy, we’re working on skirt supports (aka hoops, panniers, bustles etc.) right now and one thing I can say for sure, they are big … Continue reading

Since I last talked to you…

Tweet First of all let me thank you for your comments that made me feel very welcome back into blogging! It is so nice to know people are still reading this! 🙂 So let me give you a short update on what has been going on in my life these months when I’ve been all quiet on here. As you know my boyfriend moved over here from New Zealand a year ago and having him here is of course amazing. Moving to a new country the way he has though requires quite a bit of paperwork and permits and registratering … Continue reading
