5 things I liked this week – 4/3/16

  1. The quiet, calm routine of work.
  2. Spectre with it’s lovely grey scenic palettes and some damn fine tailoring.

3. This article from The Londonist on the history of Queer London.

4.Lotta Jansdotter

I love Lotta Jansdotter’s Everyday Style book, it’s beautifully set out, more of a ‘lifestyle’ book than just a sewing book, there’s gorgeous photos and it’s set out in four seasonal sections. It’s very inspiring, in that she talks about having a basic year round wardrobe of patterns that you can alter by sewing with different materials or by changing details like the length. Her fabric choices are mostly gorgeous too, I would love that raspberry coloured dress (top right) and the yoga bag in maroon (bottom left), eep I want!

5. I can’t make it to The Knitting and Stitching Show this time round but I love seeing the pictures of the stalls on Twitter, I particularly like this display from Hannah Bass.
