About Me

My photo

My work is mainly Free-motion embroidery; I like to work with Hand dyeing, Appliqué, Textural layering and Lace effects on soluble fabric, to create fabrics rich in texture and colour. I draw inspiration from just about everything including, nature, art, fantasy, and historic and religious influences. Fine machine embroidered detail and hand beading is incorporated into my wedding garments and special occasion wear

DRAPING
This is a top that I made as an example at a draping workshop the fabric cut and draped on the dummy and then stitched to make the garment


Top draped and pinned on the Dummy at my draping workshop -
the detail is just sample pieces of fabric pinned into position 

Finished top - just an experiment, but am pleased with the result
