Modelling Work and Spoon Skirt

Modelling Work

At around the age of 10 (amongst many other occupations), I wanted to be a model. I instantly discounted it because I had a bit of a funny walk and didn't think I was that pretty.

I'm still not incredibly pretty, still not much taller than I was at 10 years old (I've reached the dizzying heights of 5'3" since) and have a few inches more in the boob than Kate Moss does. None of this stopped me fulfilling a long-abandoned dream, as I modelled a bag in issue 80 of Singletrack.

I'm sure that Burberry contract is on it's way to me in the post.

Spoon Skirt

Here's my latest sewing project, using the spoon patterned cotton I bought in Berlin. Didn't use a pattern, just went for it. All hand stitched. Sorry for the variable quality of the photos. I feel fabulous wearing it, and the hours I spent on it were worth it. I think I'll call it's theme 'Goth Tablecloth'. Eat that, Galliano.
