Cold inspiration

July, a beautiful summer day, a totally clear blue sky, I was heading home down the A5. I was in a rush. My head full of things I still had to do before Friday my Manchester fashion Tanda, in 2 days time.

but the delicate white shapes etched across the blue…? I turned around. iron1

I added a couple of roses and I made a lovely swirly asymmetrical skirt and a sexy halterneck top…and I had to make sure they worked on the dance floor,

product development and all that…
