Episode Eight : Finding Your Colours with Vicki Wright and Giorgia Migliaresi

This week’s guests are Vic Wright and Giorgia Migliaresi with us to talk all about colour!

When we pair together our guests we try and tie them together with a common thread and this one was colour! Giorgia has recently been on a Colour Analysis course and has much wisdom about finding the right colours for you and Vicki is the most colourful dressmaker we know! We thought it would be really interesting to hear how colour effects them both – and we were right- it really is!

Both sewing bloggers and talented dressmakers, we chat about their sewing stories, the community and fabrics (of course!) whilst covering some very useful tips and tricks to discovering your colours!

Colour is a big part of everyone’s life but follow Giorgia and Vic’s advice to make it an even bigger part. You will be surprised at how much it can effect your mood and general wellbeing as much as your wardrobe.

Join us for a cup of tea and chat all about the wonderful world of colour!
