.Anyway I am hopefully adding a little sparkle into January with my new creations - The Busby Berkeley dolls.
Busby Berkeley was famous for his elaborate and grand musical numbers, and I have to say they have hypnotised me since I was a child. These amazing grand routines - choreographed in geometric patterns and overhead shots are perfect research in creating my little 30's chorus girls. I've so enjoyed watching endless clips from the most famous of his films. Not only are the numbers visually stunning and the epitome of glamour, but also very quirky and quite surreal.
These little ladies are all sparkles and ready for their audition with Buzz Berkeley!
I am homing all my needles, pins and fabric for this current project/
obsession in a Cath Kidson gypsy caravan sewing basket - a wonderful Christmas pressie.
