It's funny how everything is always extremes. Nothing to do or everything to do. At the moment I'm in everything to do mode. But this is good. I don't like being bored!
A lovely lady contacted me via Folksy to ask whether I could make some knickers for her to give to her flower girls as presents. The theme of the wedding is Pink and Tartan which she wanted me to incorporate into the designs.
It was fun finding materials for a brief. Normally I just go for anything that catches my eye or that has the right quality for a floaty pair of knickers. The restriction on colours and the necessity to include tartan actually made me feel more creative. It's a shame, but I think I thrive on boundaries!
These are the sketches and fabric samplings I sent to the bride-to-be to show her what I was planning. I'm a bit dissapointed with the scans of the fabric as I don't think they do the prints any favours, but it was nice to do a bit of drawing for a change.
I'm in France at the moment looking for some where to live, as I'm going to be moving here in August for a few months. We finally found a beautiful appartment and signed the extensive amounts of paperwork today. I'm already mentally decorating it. The 1900 architecture goes really well with my furniture and style. I'm back in England tomorrow and excited about getting sewing!
(also I'm very proud of myself, I actually made all my pictures the same size... sort of)
