What an amazing weekend! Kicking off with @imogenheap's inspiring #mycelia #blockchain event with the @mi.mu.gloves gang. Immi and #froufrou played an incredible gig! I saw @krishalpin, @chaggylalala and @mostlynoise doing some amazing jamming and #timexile closed the show. Exciting things are happening in #mimugloves world

Yesterday I bought this delightful #pincushion from @remnant.black at the #satanicfleamarket. How lovely is this? It's hand-sketched and then free #machineembroidered with a lovely herringbone backing. Look at the velvet brain!! I'm gonna sew on a strap so I can wear it on my wrist. Check out Catrine Dudfield's other beautiful creations via her profile link above.

@fancychances is epic at the best of times.. but to fly through the air - hanging by only her hair - whilst doing a #LoieFuller inspired act is something else. I get to see it in person on monday. Go see her at @LaSoireeLive at the #aldwychtheatre. Also, perfecting the outfit is an ever evolving process!

Never ending mending.. my favourite pair of jeans. I'm introducing you in honour of @makesmthng week. Why not make or fix something you love instead of buying things we dont really need? #visiblemending

I've had these beauties four years and I'm not giving up on them. I cycle and crawl around the floor a lot, so they take a lot of wear and tear.. now more stitching than demin, they're a work of art in themselves.

Couture leather jacket, private commission

This jacket is made from japanese plonge leather which is perfect for soft tailoring as it has a beautiful drape. The ruffled front panels alone have 24 pieces and 120 seams. These tiny pieces create volume and also mean use of the material is optimised; as little as possible is wasted. The tailored sleeve was made with pintucks which also reduces waste. This increases the cost quite a lot, but having a client willing to invest in this process is wonderful. It took myself and @zonulesofzinn a whole day of beard rubbing tetris to lay it out on a single skin and there was surprisingly little left over. We decided to name this satisfying practice #cowgazing. The wonderful lady who commissioned this piece understands the value of a garment made with love and will keep it forever. Well made leather garments when cared for properly will last a lifetime. She was as delighted with the result as I was. It was hard to hand it over!
