Haute Couture

Here's something else I have made this week.....



It is for a competition over on folksy, the brief was to make something inspired by UK news. Here's the piece I wrote to explain my inspiration,

'Fed up with looking like Michelin man during our arctic snap, well you can keep warm and look fantastic in handmade pure wool clothes!

Our model Sarah is wearing a hand felted merino top with a little ribbon rose detail. The skirt is made from a luxury pure wool woven fabric. She is also sporting a custom made merino wool and silk coat with matching flower brooch, the snug but stylish outfit is finished off with a beautifully soft merino wool scarf, perfect for keeping those chilly northern winds out.

Inspired by news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7812487.stm

Voting is now open until midnight on Sunday over on the folksy blog so go take a peak at the other entries, and if you thing I'm worthy of winning I'd really appreciate your vote :-)
