Etsy Around the World: United Kingdom

From the Shetland Islands to London, Etsy's blog highlights the UK's diverse community of makers.

And on the way, they stopped by...

For Edinburgh-based Lois Sturgeon of 13Threads, it is proximity to the world’s largest arts festival that fires up her creative imagination — but the breathtaking views from her workspace windows don’t hurt, either. In fact, she designs, cuts, and stitches all her handmade clothing — kimono-style dresses made from Liberty of London fabric, tweed wool and mohair wrap jackets, wide-legged denim culottes — in a room at home that overlooks the Edinburgh castle. The one-off nature of her pieces makes each one a wearable work of art, especially since they are inspired by elements of traditional dress and historic costumes. In her line, old-fashioned flourishes find a new — and eager — audience. “After many years of making and wearing my own clothes and being stopped and asked by strangers where they could purchase them, 13threads was born,” Sturgeon says. - Etsy Blog

New Hats

A furry one

and a boiled wool one.

Both are listed in my website shop and my Etsy shop. I have enough of the boiled wool to make two but the green furry one is the only one!

Gorgeous rings are by

Another Tunic Dress...

Bright, bold, beautiful flowers on a dark black background.

Another wonderful Liberty of London print on silk crepe de chine

made into one of my tunic dresses.

And Then The Sun Shines

and it is actually warm: actually one of those stunningly beautiful days that only ever drops by in September once the Festivals have finished and we have been lulled by the cool chill approaching back into our tights, coats and early evenings in front of the fire.

So as we definitely move towards Autumn, there are still days left to wear a little tunic top on its own

or with a lightweight coat...and sandals!

Moving Towards Autumn

with some new listings in my shop.

Black/Grey Wool Skirt worn with Liberty of London Top and Black Denim Coat

Charcoal Grey Wool Jersey Top

Black Cotton Twill Asymmetrical Skirt
This black twill skirt is one of my favourites and has become part of my daily uniform. (Sorry, photo is rubbish and I will try to get another one).

Wide Cheesecloth Top/Tunic

And this is the very last of my cheesecloth! Long, warm, sunny days are very much behind us now in Edinburgh...

Just makes sense to add Austen to my Freitag collection!

Always great!
