Do What Makes You Happy
A machine embellished, layered textile collage combining a gentle mix of vintage and modern.
I have worked onto a snippet of 1950’s silk damask, adding in layers taken from a 1940’s wedding dress, a treasured snippet of Parisian Edwardian lace, hand dyed Venetian lace and vintage embroidered linens.
Embellishments include pearl beads, hand stamped linen and one of my favourite quotes…’Do What Makes You Happy’ that has been typewritten on my father’s 1950’s vintage typewriter.

The story behind…
My design was inspired by the beautiful wispy symmetry of delicate lacy blooms and balmy summer evenings, taking in the scent of honeysuckle and jasmine, as you watch the butterflies dance in the breeze.
