During lockdown I sewed some coordinated dress and mask combos; loose cotton shift dresses to accommodate the inevitable weight gain paired with covid ready face coverings.
The fabrics are my own designs which I get printed to order in the UK by Woven Monkey.
These combos went down particularly well with shop checkout people, bless them, who were pretty much my only outside contacts. One chap in Waitrose complimented my outfit then looked down at his stripy shirt and said “Oh, I’m going to get a mask made to match it!” I really hope he did…
This certainly made dressing for social distancing a bit more fun.
For my latest foray into textile design and home sewing I made myself a cotton dress to wear to my dear friends’ June wedding in London.
As usual I had the fabric digitally printed by Woven Monkey in the UK having made a white, red and pale green version of one of my cockerel variations; as my dad once said I’ve certainly got a lot of mileage out of that cockerel!
