Projects

Peplum Top

Liberty Shoes

Liberty Shoes

Upcycling the style of your shoes is the ideal way to boost your style without massive expense – so why not customise your footwear with a statement heart or ballerina style bows? It's a unique way to give a new lease of life to a pair of pumps in need of some Liberty love. Let's step to it!

Drape Cape

Drape Cape

We can all enjoy an extra dash of cool with a well-cut cape, and Amanda Walker’s project is extra swish because you can make it without a pattern. Finished with shapely splits and a vintage clasp, this garment will bring casual elegance to your outdoors adventures. Read on, and you too can become a caped crusader!

Doggie Raincoat

Doggie Raincoat

At this time of year, you never know what the British weather will bring, but that's no reason not to have fun with waterproofs. Amanda Walker's laminated rain coat gives you the perfect chance to stitch with oilcloth and you can even fashion a detachable hood so you're always protected from the elements, rain or shine.
