In last week's creative space I asked for some advice and inspiration for a skirt refashion.
But advice wasn't the only thing I received...
On Tuesday a parcel arrived for me from Leonie.
A very special brown-paper-package-tied-up-with-string. And inside:
pippijoe which I have long coveted...
How could I not trust the creative instincts and suggestions of the woman behind the gorgeous pants of Raglan Guld?
I'll be taking Leonie's advice, and hope that I'll be able to show you the fruits of my labour some time during the week.
Thank you Leonie for your generous, encouraging gesture, I'm absolutely stoked.
More creative spaces over here.
