The season’s are changing. Does nature’s palette influence your sewing and colour choices?
I would never have paired my turquoise earrings with red lace, if I hadn’t spotted a local cottage garden. This stunning cotton lawn from Sew Me Sunshine magnificently combines both colours. As Harriet herself says, ‘perfect for autumn’!
And some hues just make you want to cuddle up in cosy fabrics. Coat sewing, anyone? I’d love to make the Tessuti Oslo coat.
I was struck by how much purple there was outside, which made me pull out some silk. I wouldn’t automatically consider silk an autumn fabric, but this fabric does keep a person warm as well as stylish. What would you make? A Sew Over It pussy bow blouse?
And now my TOTALLY RANDOM QUESTION. I’m fascinated by the cultural moment that immersive theatre and cinema experiences are having. Have you attended one? What were your thoughts, and why do you think these experiences have become popular? Is it the entertainment industry steering us towards more live events? Or is this audience-led, people seeking escapism from the world around us? These events lend themselves to costume making. Have you sewn something? Is this 2018’s cosplay? SO MANY QUESTIONS! Help a bystander understand, please!
