Velvet cloaks – sneak preview

Velvet cloaks – sneak preview

I hope you all had a beautiful sunny weekend! Yesterday I made the most of the good weather forecast and scheduled a photo-shoot for the new products I’ve made for Oshun recently. I’ve had a stack of the most beautiful lush vintage cotton velvets calling me to use them from the corner of my work room. So I’ve finally decided to turn them into velvet cloaks perfect for weddings, handfastings, LARP, re-enactments, cosplay or just wrapping up in to keep warm! So far I’ve made three (they take a lot longer to make than you might think due to the thickness of the fabrics I’m dealing with!), but I’ll be continuing to sew more over the next couple of weeks. We’re hoping to go to the cliffs of Cornwall to shoot the next bundle, but that’s reliant on the campervan and the weather co-ordinating with each other, so we’ll see!

The first three were modelled at Exmoor National Park and although I’ve only had a brief look at the fashion photos, I’m very pleased and can’t wait to edit them and show them to you. Here’s a sneak peak of me having a sneak peak!
