Adding pockets to clothes is a good way to start the week!

I had a couple of pairs of utility trousers that lacked pockets. So here is a pair of shorts upcycled from utility trousers with fun pockets added.

Oh and I am chuffed I had some packaging from a little parcel I received last week that was a good size for a pocket bag pattern! 😎

A few weeks ago - when we took this photo I came to a realisation. It was a lovely sunny day but blimey - it was soo windy! @billieraephoto did a brilliant job to capture my work while it wasn't being blown all over the place!

But I am so glad in a way that the elements were 'against' us because it made this design better. A loved how Ladina's red lipstick worked with the blues of the clothes. And then the wind just blew the collar upwards - STRAIGHT ONTO HER RED LIPSTICK!

Had this not happened I wouldn't have realised that there was a massive flow with this design. It was too 'free' to do its own thing. What if this happens to someone wearing a frilled collar dress on a night out? 😱

And then it came to me - adding little poppers to keep things in place would resolve this and would be invisible so the design would stay the same.

Swipe to see solution 😉

Every time I make something I think perhaps an opportunity will show up to make it better. It is not about it being perfect straight away but about following the process of what works. Until it does.

Enjoy your Sunday 💚

Taking a little break from stripes today but staying within sea inspired mood. While I've been looking at mostly mechanical and structural nautical forms within my recent work I do love design inspired by organic matters and life.

And I must say - I am loving my new earrings from @mildredtrouble 😍
Perhaps I'll wear them with an UNDERDOCK piece next 😎⚓

It's been another materials sourcing morning and I have lots and lots of stripes! Perfect for shorts trim and frill collar shirts and dresses. Good thing I always have an extra UNDERDOCK tote bag in my rucksack to carry it all.

And besides - anchors are always in fashion! 😍⚓

I spent the day making variations of this dress. It is strangely satisfying!

I'm looking forward to making a couple of pairs of shorts tomorrow ☺️ What are YOU looking forward to this week? X

Let's chat details! I'm so excited to have received this through the post today!

Because I don't think it's enough to just use existing materials for the main part of a redesigned garment. It is also about sourcing the right trim and thread.

A couple of the garments in the new collection feature sew-on poppers exactly like these. Now, I could have simply ordered them wholesale cheaply - who would have known?
Well, I would. And it doesn't sit right with me to create demand for virgin materials - especially knowing I could find an alternative.

So here is a lovely little selection of vintage poppers. As you can see some are missing from the packs. I think this adds to their story but most importantly I know that while they are not second hand in terms of being worn, they have found a new home, over here and hopefully - soon - they'll be on their way to you stitched to your new UNDERDOCK shirt or dress.

X 💚

Here's to  #winddownwednesday and injecting some carefree spirit to your week 😉
In days like these layering is essential and having a cool shirt that looks great buttoned up or open can make a difference. Its all about the little things 💯

This morning I had to get out of the house and couldn't find my umbrella in the rush. After the initial frustration I just got out wearing a slightly water resistant jacket.

And then - I thought why not see this is an opportunity? I had put a pair of the new earring pieces I made over the weekend and decided to give them a test run out and about.

I can confirm that the non-toxic vegan glue I used did well under rainy conditions 🌧️☺️

As you can see it didn't go well for my now frizzy hair! 

Here's to understated  #tuesdaystyle and the fact that I now got my umbrella 💯

I have had this idea for a while and I just  LOVE LOVE LOVE it when experimentation works and results are great!

Some of the pieces in the new collection are made with Zero Waste design in mind. Nonetheless - there are still small off-cuts I have been keeping in empty takeaway boxes ready for when inspiration strikes.

And then it hit me - I love creating fabric dressed buttons but I never thought to dress them in off-cuts. I also have had the idea of making some upcycled jewellery for sometime. I created a 'Barnacle Necklace' for a video recently and I thought to take it further BUT I found it difficult to create a strong enough bond for a durable necklace. So I thought - what else could I do to use fabric off-cuts?

I started experimenting in various types of earrings and this head ornament. All dressed with off-cuts from the production of clothes I have previously made.

Ta-daa ❤️
What do you think?
