Love to get some feedback.

I love fabrics and clothes but really not the catwalk glamour kind.What I love are homemade style and unusual designers who make ageless and comfortable clothes for all types of women. I love antique lace and pretty things like ribbons and other embelishments. Ethnic clothes and all kinds of embroidery interest me and I love to look at piantings for inspiration too.All dress is fancy dress if you like as we are born nude Ha ! Ha!
So please if you have any comments ,ideas or favourites let me know,hope you enjoy Sweet Disorder!

My latest attempt at home made style!

I loved the brown check dress I posted from my favourite french boutique  and decided to try to make something inspired by it. Here is the piece during construction.

I found this Autumn coloured check cotton at our local fabric shop . Truro Fabrics,a great place full of lovely textiles ,yarn,books and magazines about all types of needlework,knitting and crafting of many kinds.The shop is famous here in Cornwall and people come distances to shop there. One good reason is the wonderful staff who are all enthusiasts and have great knowledge to share.
I decided to play around with a little pocket and even tried a few lazy daisies,I haven't done any embroidery for years and I think I might try and do some more.Mum taught me a few stitches a long time ago.
The little piece of antique lace I found in my lace box was just right!
So here it is finished! I will wear it with a lacy underskirt ,laceup brown boots and some lovely warm winter tights when it gets a bit chilly.I am not a very expert seamstress but I am happy with this skirt.
Next project is going to be another skirt from an old skirt pattern I just picked up for 40 pence in a charity shop this afternoon..
