Rock Werchter – it’s all about the Party Waistcoat

Rock Werchter is a 4 day Music Festival held in the little village of Werchter in Belgium, not too far from Brussels. My personal music highlights, to name but a few, were Florence + the Machine, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Howard, Wolfmother and Noel Gallagher & the Flying Birds. I had been busy in my sewing studio for the 2 months leading up to Rock Werchter, creating some suitable “Party / Festival” clothes. With time quickly evaporating, I packed a bag of sewing essentials as we departed London, so I could do some last minute sewing on … Continue reading

“Party Playsuit”

I used this retro pattern I borrowed from my mum’s sewing cupboard to make this cute little playsuit/jumpsuit (View 2).

New project – tailored “Party Pant”

When I was visiting my family in Australia last month  I spent couple of days back in my country town of Walcha. My home in Walcha fills me with very fond memories and this little impromptu visit gave me a chance to affectionately rummage through my mum’s sewing cupboard and see if there was anything I could “borrow” and add to my own “sewing studio” in London. What I love most about this cupboard is the vast array zippers  and fabric of all lengths and colours, patterns and bits and bobs carefully packed into the small shelves and drawers.  I can remember clothing being made … Continue reading
