Photoshoot of my woodland dresses

 My lovely friend Sonara and I went to our beautiful local park today with a small collection of the dresses I have been making for my woodland  collection, it was so cold and windy, it was pretty hard to get the dresses to hang right. 
We took some pom poms from our shop and hung them in the tree.
Doris (the mannequin didn't behave at all!)
 I have loved making such girly and pretty clothes, I enjoy every stitch whether by hand or machine

 I have collected vintage wedding dresses and other pieces of silks, satins, beads and pearls like a textile magpie!

 Oh how I love the different textures, each one tells its own story to me
I will be listing these on my Etsy page over the next couple of days if you know a mori lover please feel free to share my sneak peek at the shoot. I will be adding the finished thing soon xxx

Happy new year!

Hello lovely people, we had a nice quiet Christmas just staying home and watching films and eating, spending time with the family is the best when there's no pressure to be perfect. 
For New Year's Eve on the spur of the moment my Mr and I went out ( never done this before) with my co worker at our shop, Jacqui and our shop landlord Dennis. We saw a couple of bands and I had my first alcoholic drink in 6.5 years! Lots if fun, laughing and a bit of dancing too. 
New Year's Day we have eaten lots of naughty food stayed in pjs and watched films all day how very perfect! 
Back to work at the shop tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to going and making lots of lovely items to put in our children's boutique. 
Hope you had a wonderful time too xx
