This listing requires YOU to PROVIDE YOUR OWN GARMENT.

The garment of your choice will be ornately decorated with a textural, costume jewellery inspired embellishment. Featuring vintage and/or recycled fabric applique panels, a bold vinyl print and 2d printed ‘jewels’.
Please get in touch to discuss your requirements before ordering and as it is recommended that you send your garment tracked please consider the extra postage costs this option entails.
In order to get your embellished garment back to you before Christmas I will need to receive YOUR blank garment within ONE WEEK of you placing your order.
eeeeek, admittedly I have left this launch quite late, so on this occasion the turn around times will need to be tight in order to ensure no one is disappointed.
Select up to THREE print colours. These will be used for the base print, which is pressed direct to the garment, and for the printed, fabric ‘jewels’ which are cut out by hand and stitched onto the garment after to give a textural finish to the embellishment.
Before work begins on your garment you will receive a short consultation via email or text including a photo of your chosen print colours and proposed patterned fabrics.
A tip for picking print colours
I recommend including SOME texture, whether you pick a glitter, mirror OR flock for one of your print colours, adding some variety to the surface of the print generally looks more pleasing than 2-3 flat colours. We will FINALISE your colour choices at the consultation stage. Please get in touch if you have any questions you might have before ordering
Vintage and secondhand fabric
The vintage and recycled fabrics used in my designs are sourced from local charity shops, brocantes in France and via kind donations from fellow makers, looking to recycle their unwanted textile offcuts. All fabrics are machine washed before being repurposed.
Each print is decorated with secondhand or vintage fabric applique panels. These are cut out by hand and machine stitched into place. A large and ornate costume jewellery inspired vinyl print is pressed over the applique panels before being further adorned with 2d, vinyl printed, fabric ‘jewels’.
Every garment is embellished to order. There will be a 3 week turn around time on this item.
Please note, I do not accept returns on custom made items.

Caring for your Embellished Sweatshirt
Embellished sweatshirts are machine washable at 30 degrees. In order to keep the textural pieces of your embellishment in good condition a gentle cycle is recommended.
Shake out after washing and allow to dry naturally on a clothes rack or washing line.
Please DO NOT tumble dry or iron directly over the print.
