21  U.K. AND IRELAND / SCOTLAND / Re: Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Meet up? on: June 19, 2009 12:59:12 PM
Hi there!
I'm afraid the meet up never happened, It's hard to get a group together. I live outside Aberdeen but if you have a blog or site, i'll pop on and have a look. As for farbic your pretty limited in Aberdeen altho, having a good rummage in the charity shops can come in handy!

Wow thanks for the link, I'm seriously impressed by the beautiful quality of your work!
I almost had a heart attack when I saw the very handsome guy in doublet, cape and ruff combo, Amazing! I love this period of history and giving it small contemporary twists is cool. Was the ruff and doublet hard to make?

As for adapting trousers accordingly I think I might be capable, hehe

Our fashion and textile class had to make garments for a charity fashion show, way back in October, we were put into teams of 3 and given 15 to spend in the charity shop on anything we liked.
We chose silk scarfs as we knew the rest of the class would choose existing garments.
We made a tight fitting bodice and a full skirt. The bodice was a cheap corset(thank god for primark!) and the scarfs were folded to fit the form, I had to hand sew every fold down, crazy amount of sewing later and Tada! done!
The skirt is pretty simple we sewed all the scarfs together joining one corner to another and forming a chain, we then turned a channel for elastic and fini!
Our team won out of 8 entries. Wooooop
Here's the pics, our model was Katy she was in our group and did an amazing job!

Love to hear your opinions!

I really love the tiles and the design on the drawers. I think your kitchen could even handle the design on the red cubbords, would have a wow factor.
I dislike fourms for perfect homes, we all have our own tastes, I love colour and dream of a tutti fruity kitchen, i can hear all the white box, perfect homes people groaning now, hahaha!!
Fab job tho!
