I have recently had the absolute pleasure of Josie from Frances Baker joining me in my little studio. Our days are filled with plenty of sewing and pattern making not to mention blog talk, giggles and tea.
Josie helped me whip up this little Black number named Thelma as well as two special dresses for a very talented lady who has a rather special day coming up....
We are currently working on a dress that I am very excited about and cannot wait to share when she starts to take form... a little different from my other designs this darling with feature organza and bows... Perfect for starry evenings!
Josie brought along a very special pattern making book that has countless tiny patterns from the 1950s. By using a simple scaling system they can be drafted to your size in no time at all... I have my eyes on some beautiful little outfits from the children's wear section!
It has been so wonderful to have a lovely lady working along side me, in fact it makes the days spent on my own a wee big sad... Thankfully I have our next date coming up very soon x
