So today was very tiring, so this is gonna be a short one. Both Andrea and I have loads of orders at the moment, but we both have to squeeze in time to make new pieces for our collections, so we worked late today! I made a cute leopard halter neck top (pics to follow!) and andrea has been working on the most gorgeous whole-colour organza petticoats! I shall post some pictures as soon! Goodnight all! Gill x

Well here we are! I have meant to do a blog before, but at midnight last night I thought I might as well set one up! It makes sense, as when I'm not on the sewing machine/tied to the pliers/fixing websites I am a total 'Blog Addict'!
Just to let you know a little info about me...my name is Gillian Davis and I run an online business, with 2 websites, http://www.roseandanchor.co.uk/ and http://www.sweetlittletrinkets.co.uk/.
Basically one website houses my collection of 1940's/50's/60's inspired clothing and accessories, and the other contains all my kitschy jewellery.
My friend and studio-mate Andrea Sef makes petticoats (http://www.petticoatsaplenty.com/) but you'll hear more from her later! Her petticoats are really popular, and they go perfectly with my full skirted swing dresses!
We have a lovely studio/workspace in Liverpool...see pictures! I'll be honest, this is just one corner of our work area...it is basically a massive room with lots of industrial sewing machines and rolls of fabric, but this is the interesting (and tidy!) bit!
Anyway, that's it for now, but I'll be back!
