one denim bird goes BOLLYWOOD!!!

Well I can finally reveal a few pictures of the creation I made for the lovely Sammy (left) who is a local lass that co-owns the delightful 50's style cafe in Bright called Coral Lee with her partner in crime, Leonie (right).

These two girls hand make all the mouth watering goodies at Coral Lee ..... tasty slices, salads, dressings, relish, cakes to drool over and fabulous coffee!

Coral Lee is also a treasure trove of op shopped finds!  All the dainty tea cups and sauces, 70's era coffee mugs, miss matched plates, aprons, record player and fittings have been sourced second hand, op shopped or handmade! 


Sammy commissioned (little ole) me to make her 50's style dress (with a Bollywood twist) from a traditional Sari bought back personally from India by Leonie, who's wedding was held yesterday afternoon!

It was an absolute pleasure to be able to help out such a lovely bubbly lass not only because I got to create something so gorgeous but also because using an Indian Sari to make up the dress felt close to my own heart.  Having travelled through parts of India in my hey day I have such fond memories of not only the array of colour, texture and variety of Indian textiles but also the daily trials and tribulations of travelling in such a vast and diverse land.  It was truly magical.

So here they are ....

Now I just need to get a hold of photos of Sammy twirling in her beautiful dress.............coming soon  
Watch this space .....
Hope you all had a fab weekend,
