I don’t usually dress up for work because I end the day covered in fluff and threads and random scraps of fabric. Because I’m on my feet all day, clothing has got to be comfortable and footwear preferably flat. I try to wear something handmade because the kids always ask.

The flower was made using instructions in Fun-to-Wear Fabric Flowers. I love this book, lots of clear instructions to make any number of fabric flowers from quite structured to very loose and scrunchy. This one is Tweed on p.67 and I made it as a sample for a group of girls who wanted to sell fabric flowers as a business venture. We cut the number of petals from 15 to 8 as the first flower was as big as a hydrangea! I love the silk tweed with this charcoal jacket.
