A little space to share my love of fashion from modern to vintage from couture to homespun. Detailing my influences, inspiration, elation and frustration in making and creating be it current trends or historical influences. From designing to drafting and adapting patterns, making up, tailoring tips, putting my thoughts out there to share.
My background is in theatrical costumes, working at the tender age of sixteen as wardrobe assistant at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and a stint as wardrobe mistress for Scottish Ballet. Hence the Tulle! As for the Tweed my roots are in the rugged west coast of Ireland home of Donegal Tweed and where I still have a home and I have a particular love of Harris Tweed from the beautiful Hebridian Island of Harris in Scotland. I live and work in Glasgow, Scotland
Would love to hear from other aficionado’s of fashion and all things stitchery. Look in from time to time. I shall be posting tutorials, how tos, tricks and insights xXx
