I get my creative inspiration from so many sources. Sewing and cooking . This retro recipe book enhanced my love of saffron buns ,vintage textiles and dirndl aprons.
I’ve given this saffron bun recipe a start. Tho only using 1/3 if the recipe. Last month for a show I made several dirndl inspired holiday aprons.
The pale butter vintage check (above left) is the only one I’ve leftover now, and my favourite. The textiles for these aprons and overskirt are upcycled linen/cotton respectively. It is such a joy designing and sewing these for my clients to wear and enjoy and perhaps pass down for family.
Oh how these little things draw a big sigh of melancholy remembering holidays of yore with Oma.
Do you have a special childhood holiday memory?
