Vintage Meadow Cardigan

Beautiful Vintage Cardigan I created to express a nostalgic ideal of  lazy days in a meadow. The design was inspired by my collages of dandelion clocks and poppy heads, and I wanted the whole design to have a vintage feel to it.

Zoomed up Image of the Shima knitted design, made from my original illustrations of Dandelion Clocks and Poppy Heads

Retro Striped Cardigan with the Frills

 One of my other cardigans is the Retro striped cardigan with textured frills, The frill was actually developed from a little sample the fell off and then i figured it could be reattached in a frill design to give the samples and this cardigan a girly retro feel.


These are some of the original samples which inspired this cardigan.

Hanging Samples and Laser Cut Trims

These are some pictures of my final show and the trials and experimentation with the display boards, I wanted to show my samples in a quirky different way and I ended up experimenting with some of the laser cut trims I created earlier in the project and had left over.
