This post is long overdue.
I've been properly home for a month now and I'm only just getting around to replying to emails and updating the various social media elements of my life. I suppose I've been putting off blogging so that it's not some pathetic post featuring lots of Instagram photos... But unfortunately, I now feel I've been putting it off too long and that I need to write something.
My summer was amazing. I know I've not really explained what I was doing. I spent 12 weeks at Selfridges working as a Visual Projects intern. This meant that as a part of the visual team I was involved with more of the store planning and layout rather than dressing mannequins and windows. I got to be a part of lots of Christmas things, such as the press show, campaign shoot and eventually helped with the Toyshop. It was really the most incredible experience of my life and I enjoyed every second of it. It opened my eyes to the other side of the industry and has helped me focus on where I would like my future career to go. And to make things even sweeter, since it was a part of my coursework, I got an A for the module!
I know I hinted at this but I done quite a lot of fabric shopping and sewing whilst I was away and have continued with lots of sewing since I've been home. (I've also been on holiday in between where I found a random fabric shop in Malaga and made a special trip to Gratacos in Barcelona since they're my favourite supplier and headquartered there.) So for this post, I've decided to share the Instagram images of what I've sewn in my silence.
1. Simplicity 1873, Gratacos Brocade
2. Colette Hazel, African Cotton
3. Victory Roxanne, Print Georgette
4. Vogue 8815, Retro Cars Cotton
5. Simplicity 1873, Liberty Cotton
6. Simplicity 1873, Houndstooth Poly
7. How I style no. 1!
If you're on Instagram, it would be awesome if you'd follow me cause I've been posting there a lot lately;
Now that I'm back on track, I'm planning some proper posts, look out for London fabric shopping haunts, my feelings on PDF patterns and some Halloween fun!
