Public Service Announcement- We will be closed this morning as we are off to do fittings for a theatre show. We should be back before 1pm.Sorry for any inconvenience. This pretty pincushion bangle was one of the delights on display at the Dior exhibition in Paris. Maybe we should have one for our safety pins for fittings : ) #publicserviceannouncement #closedthismorning #costumefitting #pincushion #diorexhibition

A couple of the vintage patterns we were gifted recently for the collection. Might need some warmer weather to tempt our students to try some of these though. #vintagepatterncollection #vintagesewingpatterns #sewvintage #mccallspatterns #simplicitypatterns #stylepatterns #1960sfashion #1970sfashion #dressmaking #garmentconstruction #sewingpattern #sewingclass #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

There are lots of lovely things in progress at Unfinished Project Club this afternoon and there's even been a finished project already. Another lovely thing to come to school today is this pretty limited edition Bernina. We do love a colourful sewing machine : ) #unfinishedprojectclub #sewingclub #sundaystitching #bernina #berninasewingmachine #berninaspecialedition #bernina350 #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

We're loving this red and white skull print in the Circle Skirts class today. We think it looks quite cheerful,like it's laughing heartily. #circleskirt #makeyourownskirt #dressmaking #patterncutting #garmentconstruction #redandwhite #skullprint #happyskulls #jollyroger #pirate #sewingclass #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

We did keep the vintage Dior inspired dress in the window and re trimmed it with a non Christmas bouquet and a change to the buttons. The vintage pattern used for the bodice has an alternative option for a sweetheart neckline. This has got us thinking, perhaps a red or pink bodice with the sweetheart neckline would be lovely for a Valentine's window for next month and the pretty net skirt will survive a little longer #reprieve #diorinspired #vintagestyle #vintagedressmaking #prettydress #vintagesewingpatterns #windowdisplay #alternative #visualmerchandising #whatnext #windowdisplayinspiration # at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

The latest additions to the Headmistress' 1950s pattern collection arrived over the weekend courtesy of the treasure hunting skills of @hailstone.heritage : ) Aren't they lovely.It's tempting to make 1950s bodices a theme for the year in the window display. The vintage pattern in the collection are available to work with at the sewing school should you be inspired to sew vintage too! #vintagepatterncollection #vintagepattern #1950sfashion #1950s #1950sdress #sewvintage #eveningdress #patternlibrary #someofourfavouritethings #comesewwithus #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

We've had the diary and calendar out and have been filling in some class dates. Including a champagne cork tassel class to make use of some of those we might have acquired over the festive season : ) Seeing our lovely and very appropriate diary in this photo has made us realise we haven't put a Notebook Cover session up yet so we shall have to add that. Don't forget to make any special requests and of course you can do any of our projects during the Sewing and Garment Construction classes which are scheduled on the calendar so book in and come sewing! #comesewwithus #datesforthediary #sewing #sewingproject #sewingclasses #sewwales #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool #artnouveau #mucha #champagnecorktassels at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School

So we're back in the sewing school. We hope you've all had a lovely time over the festive season and have resolved to come sew with us this year! Now is the time to get in requests if there's a specific project you'd like to do and especially if there's a date you would like to do it on as we're filling in the diary : ) #backtoschool #newyearsresolution #sewingresolutions #comesewwithus #takingrequests #anyrequests #sewingproject #sewingclass #sewingclasses #sewingschool #rooftopateliersewingschool at Rooftop Atelier Sewing School
