Hello long lost blog! I had a lovely summer holiday and now I’m back in the studio with some fun news to share! It’s Film Festival season and one great movie which premiered at TIFF and was the gala at the AFF – and which I hope everyone gets a chance to see!-  is Heartbeat by Andrea Dorfman– it’s seriously wonderful! And it features a pretty great dress made by Sarah Haydon Roy, the wardrobe designer, in fabric designed by me!!! The dress stars in a really key scene which I totally won’t give away except to say– it looks amazing and Tanya Davis, the star of the film, rocks in it!!! It was a lot of fun working on the pattern and with the amazingly talented Heartbeat team. Here’s the original pattern design in a couple of colorways…
