Mannequin Monday - 9th April '12 - Introducing 'First Class'

This is the first new mannequin in my 'Mannequin Monday' feature. I loved this fabric when I first saw it and thought it would make a great fun mannequin. She is shown here as a size 8/10, with a corset laced back finish. You could change the lacing colour if you wanted, or have her in a size 10/12, or with a tailored back finish. See more details here: She is in the Retro Collection.

Thankyou to Karen for Sending Me this Photo

A lovely customer sent me this photograph recently of her new waspwaist mannequin settling into her new home.

Karen sent me the fabric to use for the tailoring - a very beautiful and heavily embroidered fabric. I love the opportunity to use new fabrics in this way and was very pleased with how she turned out.

Thankyou Karen for sending me the photo and I think she looks very elegant in her new setting.

I can use most fabrics to tailor with, so do get in touch if you have a fabric you would like me to use.

In other news ....

In a determined effort to use some of my collection of fabrics, new mannequins will be coming soon! I keep buying beautiful fabrics, knowing they will make beautiful mannequins and then not having the time to make them up. I am working on one at the moment which will be ready at the weekend.

Watch this space ...
