Meet Polly.

She's a style of dress I never thought I'd make or wear.

Yet here we are. And I rather like her.

SEWN: The Renegade

Thursday 21 September 2017

Sometimes we need to rebel.

Sometimes a fabric will just scream to be made into something quite unsuitable for its spongey, luxuriously heavy jacquardness.

This amazing double jacquard just wouldn't be put in its place. It believed it was born to be a renegade. Or something. The idea just kinda popped into my head and wouldn't leave me alone. It kept whispering furiously in my ear...

Make me into a Tessuti Tokyo jacket. Really. You know you want to.

And I was quite helpless to resist.

I could see in my mind's eye what it was telling me. I envisaged a swingy, perhaps slightly Japanese pattern-like trans-seasonal jacket.

LEATHERWORKED: Embracing Imperfection

Thursday 14 September 2017

I am often very hard on myself.

I want things to be perfect. I expect to live up to my own very high standards.

If you're going to do something, do it well. And I know when it's going well. There is a certain flow to the process. The pieces fall into place neatly and with decorum. The project grows in one's hands with joy and excitement.

Well hello, beautiful.

That's what I kept saying as this gorgeous bag came alive, piece by piece, in my hands.

It was only fitting that she should keep her name.

No more easily accessible photographer (hubby) means it's back to the trees with me.

Is the enthusiasm palpable?

But don't let that face fool you about how excited I am by this dress/tunic thing!

Is it a tunic? Perfect to wear with my ever-present skinnies?

Is it a dress? A look I'm much less likely to wear often, but I love that I have the choice.

Now that's a corny, very unoriginal take on a title, right?

Somedays you got it, some you don't.

Today would be a don't day.

But: Yay! I'm blogging, so all is forgiven.
