Mum



My mother Sheryl has always been a sewer and she taught me how to sew from a young age. I remember her patiently helping me sew floral overalls for a tiny white teddy bear. As a rebellious teenager I used to sew my own clothes (refusing to use patterns of course) and I'd never hem anything. Mum was too mortified to let me go into the fabric shops with her- what would the ladies think of her unhemmed child? 
This last shot shows me at my colour co-ordinated best. Mum made the skirt with the checked ribbon trim and note the matching hair ribbons. The socks take it to a whole new level. Rad Bata Bullets too!
