it’s been too long!

I can’t believe how quickly the past eight weeks have gone! Over this time I have been on placement at uni and I think going back to working full time came as a bit of a shock to the system! I am still working on a report and a presentation but I will soon be back to spending time in my crafty area over the summer.

I did manage to make one dress in this time and start a couple of other projects too. I designed and made the dress based on a vintage, ’80s style, slip-dress I bought in a vintage shop in Sheffield about a year ago. It turned out quite well although after wearing it once I am not sure how hard-wearing the fabric will be… Anyway here is a picture, tell me what you think!

I really like the colours of the fabric, and the peach binding I used on the hem. I enjoyed bringing the two together and I think they suit me really well.

I am currently working on some other designs and, all being well, am hoping to be able to sell them over the summer at a shop in Edinburgh, so we shall see how this goes! It is a great opportunity but I am feeling the pressure a little! I will keep you posted…

Iona :)
