In true Blue Peter style..

Here's one I made earlier!

As a present for my best friends birthday.

And here's a little look at the lining.

It was all very fiddly as it's really rather small, but the pattern I followed to make it was really well explained and I have to say I'm really rather pleased with the final result!

New Designers

A couple of weeks ago I exhibited my work at New Designers.

It was a really exciting week and it was great to meet people who work in the industry and receive feedback on my designs.  I have spent the last week following up contacts and working on some new designs.

Me with my designs at New Designers.

One of the ideas behind my project was to use the same fabrics for fashion as interiors.  This picture shows exactly what I had in mind.

For my dissertation I researched the concept of Make Do and Mend and this idea was definitely inspired by the countless stories of mothers making their children clothes from old curtains.

It might have also been inspired by the Von Trapps..

More Degree Show

This one includes my favourite oversized 'Bloomtown' bag...I'm not going to lie, I designed this one for me... it's got a beautiful pink velvet lining, can't wait to take the exhibition down so I can start using it!

Final Week

The deadline for my project is tomorrow, so I have been spending this week finishing off bits and bobs and setting the exhibition up at's a bit scary that the whole thing is coming to an end!

This is another picture from the photoshoot, this time of my dress.

Next week I will put some pictures up of my final show!
