For the past few months, in between my illustration work, I’ve been working on my spring/summer 2017 collection of bespoke, hand-sewn children’s clothing, made using upcycled and recycled materials.
A great place to start with any creative work is to get ideas out by creating a mood board. I envisioned bright colours, loose floaty fabrics, and took inspiration from nature, including feathers, leaves and flowers.
I wanted a pattern that was versatile – pretty, yet practical – which is why I opted for shoulder ties. Each top/dress is breathable, light, and can be adjusted by changing the length of the ties.
The full collection will appear in my shop next spring, but are available now on request. Commissions/suggestions are also always welcome.
