Im currently in London doing a 2 week work placement at Pattern Textiles Ltd. I have completed my first week and have learnt alot already. Everything is so fast moving and several designs get printed per day!
I have been very busy making printed samples into dress shapes by hemming them and adding pleates, sleaves/straps to give them shape, and to give you an idea of how the print would look on a garment.

With it being easter weekend I was off today and used my day off wisely by having a day shopping in oxford street!

Busy busy busy...

I seem to have slacked with the blog posting recently! I have been extremely busy with my final collection.
Since I last posted I have completed several final samples using screen printing, digital printing and transfer printing.
My collection seems to be coming together nicely and I'm excited to complete the last few after Easter!
Here is some pictures of a few of the samples I have been working on...
