My stitch marker sets proved very popular this weekend, so much so that I am out of stock. Getting on with making some more. #stitchmarker #dorsetbuttons #knittingcharm #knittingaid #artandcraft #fibreartist #fibrecraftaccessories #smallbuttons #smallbusiness
Last day #30days30buttons @milli_and_the_bee, it has been fun.  A collection of my bigger buttons made earlier in the year. #dorsetbuttons #lightcord #wallart #pullcordends #dorsetbuttonflower #homeaccessories
Numbers 23/24 #30days30buttons @milli_and_the_bee. Made this afternoon whilst sitting in the sun and destined to become a pair of earrings. #dorsetbuttons #dorsetbuttonearrings #fibrecraftaccessories #handmade #traditionalcraft #20mm #cottonkingsyarn
My next Haslam System project. I haven't had a pinafore dress for years. #haslamsystemofdresscutting #selfdrafting #mesized #dressmaking #makeityourself #1940s #1940sinspired
Number 17 of #30days30buttons by @milli_and_the_bee. Dorset Button brooch to go with a new dress I am making for a 1940's event on Saturday. #vintageinspired #vintagestyles #fibrecraft #dorsetbuttons #handmade #memadejewellery #repurposeremake #1940s #upcycle #makedoandmend
Almost finished my #summeralong dress, just the hems to do. Changed the skirt as the fullness didn't do me any favours. Oh, and it has pockets!!!! #killerkitschsewalong #junesewalong #haslamsystem #haslamsystemofdresscutting #madebyhand #madenotmanufactured #bespoke #mesized #1940sinspired @killerkitsch13
Number 11 of #30days30buttons. This is the finished necklace inspired by the one in a book by @beakerbutton. 19" long including the beaded centrepiece. #dorsetbuttons #beadeddorsetbutton #dorsetbuttonjewellery #uniquenecklace #yarncraft #heritagecraft #madenotmanufactured
Number 9 of #30days30buttons @milli_and_the_bee. I have made up another clock using piece of navy blue taffeta as the background and Dorset buttons as the 4 hours. #dorsetbuttonsclock #dorsetbuttondecor #timepiece #handcrafted #quartzmovement #oneoff #thriftedfabric
Day 8 of #30days30buttons is a bit different. I am making a reproduction 1940s dress and can't decide which buttons to use. #buttondecisions #vintagedressandbuttons #buttonchallenge #vintagebuttons
Worked the toile for the #killerkitschsewalong in an old duvet cover. The sleeves have been slashed and spread as too tight and the skirt needs to be much fuller but quite happy with the overall fit. Now to work with some proper fabric. #haslamsystem #haslamsystemofdresscutting #selfdrafting #madenotmanufactured #mademesize #uniqueclothes
Number 6 of #30days30buttons @milli_and_the_bee. Using Cotton Kings thread from my stash, I have an idea to make this plastic bracelet up with buttons and beads for my unit in a local craft shop.#dorsetbuttonbracelet #dorsetbuttonchallenge #uniqueaccessories #buttonsandbeads #craftshop #smallbusiness @fairycrafterswoodhallspa
Number 4 of #30days30buttons hosted by @milli_and_the_bee. I made this one recently as a zipper pull for a reproduction 1940's crochet handbag. #dorsetbuttons #zipperpull #practicaluse #1940's #reproductionvintage #aranyarn
Day 2 of #30days30buttons. This is a keyring I made today out of a cotton twine, which is a new fibre to me. Ok as a robust keyring but the colour effect is lost on this size ring. #dorsetbuttons #keyring #cottontwine #prototypetrial @milli_and_the_bee
After a long nights drafting and many refits, I now have a basic working bodice draft for the Haslam System. Next to draft the actual dress front.#killerkitschsewalong #haslamsystemofdresscutting #summerdress #selfdrafting #junesewalong #1940sinspired #madenotmanufactured
Various incarnations of the Jack Frost clamshell handbag, that I had made to sell 2 years ago. #clamshellhandbag #repro1940s #vintagestyle #reproductioncrochet #vintageinspired #modernmeetsvintage #crochethandbag #myowntake #remakeoldstyles

Happy dance as I managed to purchase this really unusual vintage Dorset Button brooch. #dorsetbuttons #vintagedorsetbutton #yarncraft #uniqubrooch #handmade #preloved #woolbrooch #frenchknots #embroideredbrooch
Just finished the #stripesalong  knitting challenge for both #killerkitschknitalong  and #vintageknittingpatternlibrary. Not totally happy so will alter it, hence no shoulder buttons. #vintageknitting #vintageknit #40sknitting #stripedknit #reproductionknitting #reproductionvintage #knittingchallenge #handknit
#marchmeetthemaker Day 22 - Proud. My proudest recent make was in 2015 when I was asked to design and make a wedding dress for a couple getting married in the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. This is the result. #williammorris #strawberrythief #uniquedress #specialwedding #oneoffdress #designedbyme #madebyme #handmadedress #patternmatch #corderoy #labouroflove #vintageinspired #40smeets50s #vintagefusion #uniquedesign #madenotmanufactured
#marchmeetthemaker 20, Design process. My product doesn't really need much design, I tend to make a few Buttons and then see where they take me. At the moment I like the small ones, making in pairs and then thinking earrings, stitch markers, bag danglies or keyrings. #dorsetbutton #transforming #keyring #phonecharm #stitchmarker #rowkeeper #rowmarker #knittingcharm #crochetcharm #earrings #bagdanglie
Simple Dorset Button on vintage satin ribbon used as a book mark in my friend @mandiebedsitt book, Fat Chance. #bookmarks #placesaver #pagemarker #dorsetbutton #yarncraft #stashbuster #hobby
@joannehawker 's #marchmeetthemaker  Day 9 | THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME  The original name, L&P Vintage Inspirations came about because of our initials and the fact my dressmaking and knitting was inspired by the 1940s/1950s fashions. The Vintage Lin version is easier to remember and was my nickname at work as there were several variants of the name Lin in the office. #vintageinspired #1940s #1950s #rocknroll #dressretro #bygoneera
#marchmeetthemaker 8) product range. Although Dorset Buttons are my current craft of choice, brooches, keyrings, bag danglies light pulls etc, I also knit, crochet, sew and embroider to order. #crochet #knitting #dressmaking #embroidery #dorsetbutton #brooches #earrings #craftjunkie #jackofalltrades
Is it a scarf or is it a turban? My latest creation is a woven knot scarf which doubles up as a turban. #scarf #wovenknot #turban #handknit #multipurpose #dualuse #madebyhand #madenotmanufactured #selfdesign

WIPSWednesday. 3 Ascot scarves in the making. #ascotscarf #knittingproductionline #handknits #neckscarf #vintageinspired

It's #wipswednesday and this is the last time I will be showing the lace Afternoon Blouse. It is finally done apart from steaming the collar a bit. I love how my adaptations have worked out finally but not going to be a repeat knit.#vintageknit #laceknitting #1940s #knittingadaptation #knittingstruggle #vintageinspired
Another Ascot/Miss Marple scarf completed for a customer. #ascotscarf #pink #doubleknit #vintageinspired #vintageknitting #vintageknit
Homework time. My interpretation of blackwork as part of my embroidery journey. #embroideryjourney #homework #blackwork #embroiderythread #varigated #myownthing
Having a go at designing a Turby. Keeps the ears warm or holds those pin curls in place. Not a turban as it does not cover the head totally. #turby #headwrap #warmears #handknitted #vintageinspired  #knitting
Another Ascot/Miss Marple scarf knitted in Cygnet acrylic yarn. For sale in my FB shop.#ascotscarf #missmarplescarf #1940s #vintageknitting #vintagepattern #neckscarf #knittedscarf #cygnetyarns
