Birdies in the garden



What a difference a year makes. Exactly a year ago yesterday, I was being married in glorious sunshine.

Twelve months on, there was no rest for the wicked on our anniversary, as I dodged bouts of Scottish drizzle to showcase my latest creations.

Yes, autumn is creeping up on us, but it’s not too late to enjoy the last days of summer with the birds, the bees and the flowers.

The gardens at the House of the Art Lover in Glasgow are looking splendid in full bloom and were the perfect backdrop for the top and skirt I made the night before.

Both coral coloured fabrics were bought during our summer holiday in GdaƄsk - but I initially never thought about making matching garments from them.

Awkward twirl, haha

The cap-sleeve crop-top is in a Polish folk-inspired cotton print of birds and flowers. Meanwhile, the mid-length skirt with pleated lower front and back is in neoprene net (also called bonded jersey net).

Whether you class this as autumn because the meteorological calendar suggests it begins on 1 September, or summer, because the astronomical one says it ends on the 22nd, I hope my outfit brightens up your day as much as it did mine.
