W.I. Workshop & Audrey Hepburn All In One Day!

I was lucky enough to teach a workshop this morning for the lovely ladies of Barlaston Heron's W.I.

Some bunnies had to leave before the photo-call, but the fellas were happy to pose.

For Mothering Sunday my request was a whole day sewing with no meals to cook etc.  I made a Balenciaga inspired jacket with some unusually soft Welsh Tapestry - YAY!

There is a very clever pleat at the shoulder seam creating a balloon effect - doesn't show up on the model very well - it's very roomy at the back but not massive as it sucks back in at the hem.

The temptation to play around with the weave was just too great,
this is why I love Welsh Tapestry.

I'd had this binding in my stash for about 10 years just waiting for the right project.

Burda Vintage Autumn/Winter 2014, I was definitely channelling Audrey today!
