On the ‘gram

I loved the “Africa Fashion” exhibit at the V&A Museum in London (it’s on until April 2023).
These are just a few snippets from my visit, and I didn’t want to give away any of the other forms of content at the exhibit, or the stories behind some of the garments – it’s not just clothes on mannequins, as usual the exhibition team has made it a deeper experience than that. More than the fashion itself, the exhibit touches on politics, modern history and aspects of African culture. And the sewist in me loved the notes On how various fabrics are woven, dyed and sewn. I think I was smiling all the way round the exhibit and zooming in on fabric and construction details!
I definitely recommend seeing Africa Fashion if you can!

This heatwave almost has us looking forward to the cooler days of autumn already! 🌞
One thing we really are looking forward to is the release of the Agnes Skirt sewing pattern, next month. A classic pencil skirt with professional-looking features such as a back vent (fully lined), zip shield and optional pockets, Agnes is a pencil skirt pattern you’ll reach for again and again.
Look out for the release in August! 💃🏾

Thank you so much to those of you who have been messaging me to ask when the #msp_agnes skirt will be re-released. She’s next in the pipeline and hopefully not too far away. (Real life has flared up of late, and slowed down pattern production, but the wheels are in motion again now!)
