Monday Maker....Lucy's Lovely Creations

Today we look at Lucy's lovely creations themselves.

Lucy’s portfolio of wares so far consists of;

The Bespoke Winnie Pinafore
Lucy adores the old fashioned principle of pinny wearing and wishes for this tradition to continue. A pinafore is a loose, protective yet beautiful garment worn over your day to day clothes.
The Winnie Pinny is designed for children with practicality in mind,styled on a vintage French children’s pinafore. The Pinny is beautifully made using early 20th Century mangle linen. A fabric that was used traditionally to protect clothes from any damage whilst being washed in the mangle, and turned to eek out the water. 

Each piece of fabric used is unique with beautifully darned areas and different selvedges, creating totally unique one off pinnies. Each pinny is stitched with 100% cotton thread. Wear them whilst playing to protect clothes whilst playing or all the time. Also perfect to make any outfit pretty for a party!

Washing Instructions- 40 degrees 
100% natural fibres (linen, cotton binding, cotton thread)
