Our new snow and ice shop window display!

I’m so excited to finally share the details of our new shop window display with you! I love this wintry window. Snow and ice was the theme, so it’s a bit odd that the sun is so obviously shining on photo day, but hey – if you don’t like the weather in England wait five minutes am I right?

All of the dresses in the window were sewn by our teacher, Charlotte Newland. The littlest dress is the Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress. It uses Passing Clouds in Blue from Bark & Branch by Eloise Renouf for Cloud9 (I think we should restock this lovely print – what do you think?) and the contrast fabric is Painter’s Canvas in Platinum from Michael Miller. Couldn’t you just eat this little dress up?

The next dress is the Clever Charlotte Starling Dress. The main fabric is Foxes in Snow from Wildwood by Bethan Janine for Dashwood Studio. The ruffles are Leaves from Urban Patch by Monaluna. Charlotte put a hand-picked zip in this dress!

Next up is my Snow and Ice Strip Quilt. I loved making this and I can. not. wait. to take it home and snuggle up under it on cold evenings.

Finally we have a Lisette Traveler Dress sewn up in Textured Solids in Laguna by Andover. This fabric is absolutely lovely for dressmaking. The dress fits me, so I’m sure you’ll see more pics of it once it’s out in the window and in my regular wardrobe rotation!

Providing the perfect finishing touch we have crochet snowflakes made by our crochet and dressmaking teacher Elisalex de Castro Peake. These use Blue Sky Alpaca Worsted Cotton in Drift.
