Recently – September

September has flown by!  I’ve been busy designing new ranges, embarking on a new sewing adventure and doing a little travelling….

A little sneak peek at a new ready-to-go range.  A proper launch to follow very soon!

I completed a dress making course at The White Room in South East London.  I made The Camber Set dress by Merchant & Mills in a lovely chambray I bought from Ray Stitch in Islington (the most beautiful shop – oh my gosh go even if you are not a sewer!).  The Tuesday evening lessons were such a joy – it has been so nice to learn something new and completely out of my comfort zone.

We travelled to Somerset to visit Steve’s family for a long weekend and stopped off in Frome for our first night – it’s one of my favourite British towns. We stayed at Archangel and ate at their restaurant which sits in this very impressive ancient barn space.

Hauser & Wirth Bruton floral

The next day, on our way to Chard to visit the family, we stopped off at Bruton to visit the new Hauser & Wirth gallery and the garden by my favourite desgnier, Piet Oudolf.  It is an absolute must see if you are ever in the area and they have a great calendar of exhibitions lined up (i’ll be popping in at Christmas to see Pipilotti Rist) and a very nice looking cafe/restaurant.  I loved these enormous tubs of florals.
