So nice (and packed) I had to go see it twice...

The Dior exhibition at the V&A is absolutely breathtaking. I couldn’t possibly go and see it enough - Below are just a few of my favourite pieces. The Garden room in particular just blew my damn mind... I want to live in...

Ah, the perils of making a-line skirts.. 😬🧵
As I was choosing fabric at the beginning of class this wee tartan beauty jumped out at me and reminded me that I need a Heathers themed outfit... 2 birds with 1 stone me thinks 🌟 

I had such apprehension about taking a st...

Thank you for sharing your sustainable wisdom and doing it so gorgeously 🌟 

I made pretty atrocious notes during this fabulous discussion as I was pretty engrossed, but key points that resonated with me were;

Because we were a small class our teacher gave us the option of making a full leg pj bottom. If you know me at all you’ll know that I rarely miss an opportunity to be kitted out in my pjs - the bigger and baggier the better. For this item I used elastic and ribbon for...

Our second class was definitely a step up - sewing in a bloody zip is no piece of cake let me tell ya. I remember putting a zip in my GCSE Textiles dress and it being wonky/coming up above the top of the dress... so I didn’t have particularly high hopes for this week’s...

I spent the weekend in Buxton recently - it filled my soul with fresh air and calm. Highlights included finding a book on wild flowers with the most beautiful illustrations I've seen in ages as well as walking past a charity shop in Bakewell and spying this vintage 'NI...

What a miserable couple of days it's been in London - I'm trying to keep my mind focused on the day that I'll be able to get my pasty legs out and wear something bright and light again. I am beyond obsessed with this Anthropologie top my partner got in a sale years ago...

Every room in my house is painted a different colour. I love the way these preeeeetty, wild-looking flowers pop against the dining room teal

WHAT.AN.EXPERIENCE. 

I'd not been to the Tate Modern in donkeys and in truth, most of my memories of it consisted of rowdy school trips with battered sketchpads and stale sandwiches. But when I spotted this exhibition in a magazine recently I was ridiculously excited an...

HELLO

Lou Budd. 25. London Town. 

Having been out of the design and making game for far too many years, I have decided to get my butt into gear and expand on my passion for all things woven: the inventive, bright and beautiful.

What I do know is that it makes my heart happy to celebrate the world's woven treasures.
