Okay, so versatile, easy-to-wear patterns and garments are getting great feedback, but I'm feeling the urge to hark back to my vintage roots. I used to collect costume and have an MA in the history of textiles and dress, so this is where my true passion lies. Although I love wearing modern, well-cut clothes in quality fabrics, I am always taken with vintage/ retro-inspired garments. Having just signed up to Sew Retro, I feel inspired to move in this direction.
So... new set of objectives: design and make a range of vintage-inspired patterns and garments.
Let me know what you think and if you have any recommendations/ sites to view etc. I'm grateful for all the help I can get!
This girl is fast becoming my idol... Her work is exquisite; the accuracy and quality of her garments stunning. When my patterns are up and running, 'products' is definitely the way I'm going... in-between teaching and living!
