- Yesterday I did a Subtraction Cutting class with Julian Roberts @subtractioncutting He's developed many truly innovative methods of cutting garments over the years and is incredibly generous with his knowledge. If he offers more classes I 100% recommend you sign up. He's a a very inspirational teacher and designer and will constantly challenge you to look at things differently. Thank you Julian for turning my dusty brain inside out and back to front!!***UPDATE - BOTH MACHINES ARE NOW SOLD***I recently bought this gorgeous little sketchbook from @beyond_measure_uk it's the perfect size to put in my pocket and take on walks. I love that it has lots of different papers in too. Looking forward to taking it on some adventures!! 🥾✏🖌🖍Good post day yesterday!! Really looking forward to getting stuck into this @orsoladecastro Congratulations on a timely book that looks to be packed with facts and inspiration ✂️

I ran this workshop for the first time yesterday and here’s the brilliant results!
Despite having a choice of 2 skirts, a dress and a top to make, everyone plumped for the frock! Maybe it was the sunshine and holiday anticipation.
So many of the clothes we wear today are made from knitted jersey fabrics that it’s not surprising so many of my students want to use this fabric. However, as my 4 students yesterday found out it presents a few challenges, but that’s why a whole day devoted to it was a good idea!
No doubt I’ll be running this workshop again in the future, maybe with some long sleeved, more autumnal styles on offer…
Here’s what some of yesterday’s students thought of the workshop:
“Great time all round, fab project.”
“Excellent day and company. Learned loads.”
What did you enjoy most about the day?
“Getting to go home with a new item of clothing, feeling industrious.”
Thanks to my 4 lovely students for making it an enjoyable day for me too!
