Stitched Vintage Dresses
I've been making cards using pages from vintage books and I've also been working on this dress. It's a vintage baby's gown and I've hand stitched quotes from mum's diary in the summer I was born and the few years afterwards. I'm hoping that I'll be able to make them for christening presents (or presents at any other time) with wishes from friends and relatives, quotations and memories. I'm also working on 'pocket books' and I'm hoping to create a kit version for those who like to make their own things. Meanwhile, the mornings are just beginning to feel full of autumnal dew and hedgerows are holding the promise of blackberries; I love the changing seasons and the variety and inspiration they bring.
