Bright and Striped!

Found this handmade striped blouse in a charity shop the other day and looking closely at its details I couldn't pass it up! The tiny delicate stitching, covered buttons and lovely darting details on the bust and back make me think that this blouse is probably quite old, maybe 1930s. The fabric is wonderful, very light cheesecloth cotton and the sleeves are so lovely with the little cuffs.
I haven't worn a headscarf that way since I was 11 when I used to wear a headscarf everyday because I hated having frizzy, curly hair. I'm very glad to say I've grown out of those feelings now! Being young is such a strange time really, so highly pressured, I'm very glad to be past that now. X

Twin Hearts

A silky top that I've started doing some appliqué on over the last couple of evenings. Tolstoy looking very quizzical over the whole process! Better photos to come! X

Early Mornings

Some photos I took before work the other day. Dressing myself has become one of my most important creative outlets recently so I like to document this whenever possible. X

New Rosette

I made a new rosette a little while ago out of some lovely grosgrain ribbon I bought at a wonderful haberdashery in St.Leonard's. 
I like the texture clash.
