First Tambour class

What a fabulous day! I had my long awaited first tambour class at couture beading and it was so fun. I am bursting with ideas, but for now it will just be continuous practice while I get to grips with the basic techniques. I am so inspired from the lesson and I cannot wait to build on my knowledge and incorporate into my regular hobbies.

A huge thank you to Lesley who is an amazing teacher with great patience and phenomenal knowledge.

My intro included learning to add beads and sequins to organza fabric….


….and I also had a go at my first ribbon rose! I am delighted with this cute little piece. I will be using up some of my ribbon stash to practice these.

Dress making

A bit of weekend dress making with mum. Loose fit with side zip fastening and button detail down the front.

Brilliant suggestion from mum to change the direction of the print on the skirt from the top. I think it looks rather nice and it is super comfy. We got the initial pattern outline by using an existing dress to work out the pieces and then added our own detail.┬áCan’t wait to design up another one!
