Celebrating 150 Years of Morris & Co at Standen - Our Secret Revealed!

So our secret is out !- this is the design team dressed to impress yesterday - in our hand made outfits in beautiful William Morris fabrics. As soon as we knew that we had been invited to the prestigious  private viewing of "Standen and 150 years of Morris & Co"  our first reaction was "What are we going to wear".  It was obvious we had to make something in Morris fabrics.

 The excitement has been too much to bear every Monday and Tuesday for what seems like weeks, after  the showroom closes we have been busy cutting patterns and tailor tacking.  It's been such brilliant fun and has rekindled our love of dressmaking. We wanted it to be a surprize for our lovely representative Caroline to turn up on the day and see her reaction.

Feeling slightly self concious we arrived at Standen to an amazing reaction from everybody.  Yes, we did make it ourselves and yes the pattern placement all matched up!
The agenda for the day was set - a welcome, a private viewing, lunch and a talk by Michael Parry author of Morris & Co a Revolution In Decoration.

We had the most  perfect day - come back soon to find out more
